Lost library materials



Please report all lost library materials to the library front desk. If you lose a library item, you will be given two options:


1. Purchase a replacement copy with contents identical to those of the lost item. After you report the lost item, you will be given a 30-day grace period to purchase a replacement copy. If the replacement copy is not obtained within 30 days, you will be subject to a NT$5 late fee per day, up to NT$150. After you reach the NT$150 limit, your borrowing privileges will be suspended for one day for each day thereafter; suspensions for multiple lost/late items are cumulative.

If you return the original copy instead of a replacement copy, you will be subject to fines as outlined in Article 9 of the library’s borrowing rules, without the 30-day grace period.


2. Pay a replacement fee according to Article 6 of the library’s borrowing rules.

Email Notification Service


The library sends out email notifications seven days, three days, and one day prior to an item’s due date. If an item is overdue, you will receive notifications one day, three days, and seven days after the due date. You will also receive an email notification upon the arrival of a requested item.


You can update your email address under the “My Account/Renew” tab after logging onto WebPAC(the “login” button can be found at the top-right corner of the library website).


To ensure that you receive email notifications, please check your inbox regularly and confirm that the emails are not categorized as spam. Regardless of the reason, failure to receive email notifications may not be used as an excuse for waiving overdue fines or obtaining a loan period extension.

Return Box



The NCHU library has a book return box, allowing readers to return borrowed books during library off-hours. If a book is returned to the return box, its date of return is the day on which it is dropped off.

If you use the return box, please check your library usage history on the next day to make sure that your books are marked / recorded as returned.

Please do not put the following materials into the return box (you will be responsible for any damage incurred):

  1. Books with CDs, floppy disks, etc.
  2. Large books that do not fit the opening of the return box
  3. Books that are dirty, damaged, or damp
  4. Items from the Multimedia Center (e.g., CDs, DVDs)

If an item is checked out, you can request it through WebPAC or the DDS. You will receive an email notification once the item is returned to the library.

You will need to pick up the requested item within five days after it is available (excluding days on which the library is closed). After six days, your request will expire, and the item will either go to the next person who has requested the item or will become available in the library.

If there are three expired requests within 120 days, you will be unable to place other requests for 30 days.

You will see something similar to this screenshot if you click on an item on the DDS search results page and then select the "Locations" tab.

A: There is only one copy of this item (there will be multiple rows if there are multiple copies), and it is usually located in the 4th-floor Chinese book stacks.

B: This item is currently checked out, and it is due on September 17th, 2015

C: You can click on this link to sign in and place a request.


If you are already signed in, then you can place a request directly by clicking on the "Hold" button (circled and labelled "C").


This is a sample of WebPAC search results page. To view the requesting status, click on the "Holdings: all items" button.


Column B shows that the book is checked out while the accompanying material is available. 

You can place a request on the book by clicking on the "Request" button (boxed and labelled as "A"). 


After you click on the "Request" button, you will be asked to sign in if you have not already done so.

Note: If an item has requests from other library patrons at the time of checkout, the loan period will be shortened from 30 days to 14 days. If a request is placed on the item after you have checked out the item, the loan period will be unaffected.
