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.

The library sends out email notifications seven days, three days, and one day prior to an item’s due date.

NCHU Library App


     We have developed an Android app that allows access to library services on mobile devices.

     The first version of the library app was released on April 17th, 2014. It allowed users to view the statuses of checked-out and requested library materials. It also gave notifications regarding due dates and arrivals of requested items. Additionally, it included an in-app renewal function, giving users a convenient means to renew items.

     A second version was released on November 24th, 2014. In addition to the original features, the new release allows users to search for library materials using keywords or ISBN barcodes. It also provides users with much more information, such as news items, new releases, popular books, library hours, and library floor plans.

     In order to support the Android system update, a third version of our NCHU Library App was released in December 2016. Some of the functions were adjusted in order to turn the App into a portable library.
