Shows you how to locate & obtain a book in XJTLU library.

Returning books

Borrowed items can be returned either at self-service machines on the 1st, 4th, and 8th floor, or at the Library Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor. For CDs, DVDs, course reserves and reserved books, please return them to the Library Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor. 

Fines

  • 0.2 RMB per item per day will be charged for any overdue item. Library users may not be allowed to borrow any books if there are unpaid fines in their account.
  • If the book on loan is requested or reserved by someone else, it should be returned by the due date. 0.5 RMB will be charged per item per day if the returning is delayed.

  • If the item on loan is lost, we encourage that a new book with the same or newer version should be purchased by the users themselves and 5 RMB will be charged to cover the cost for book processing. Or the user who lost the book shall pay the fine which will be twice the item’s value (the price of the book is shown in the Library Catalogue System).
  • If an item has been lost by the user and the compensation has been settled by the replacement with a new book, but the original copy is then found, the user may keep the original book after the barcode has been removed by a library staff.
  • If an item has been lost by the user and the compensation has been settled by twice the price of the item, but the original copy is then found, the user may contact staff at Library Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor.
