Library users' responsibilities

  1. All Library users should familiarize themselves with access, circulation, and request services, policies, and procedures.
  2. All University of Rwanda students and academic staff who are currently registered or employed are eligible to access and use library services and resources provided no materials are overdue on their record.
  3. All users must follow appropriate procedures to check out library materials before removing them from the library.  Guest-borrowing privileges shall be applied to external users. 
  4. It is the responsibility of the user to know due dates and ensure that the borrowed materials are returned by due dates or pay the fines due for failure to return the materials in time.
  5. Users must read their email messages and library notices and arrange to have email notices read or forwarded whenever they travel or are away from campus, arrange or, alternatively, return all library materials before extended absences from campus. Library fines will not be waived if a user fails to read emails and respond to recall and overdue notices.
  6. Users must return books and other library materials unmarked and in good condition as they will be held responsible for materials returned damaged. If the book you wish to charge out is already damaged, bring it to the attention of circulation desk staff, who will make note of the damage so that you will not be held responsible.
