Liability to pay damages

If the institution is registered as the user, the institution will be liable for the loans and it will be liable to pay damages in case of loss or spoilage.

If an employee is registered as a personal user entitled to research loan, it will be the employee that will be liable for the loans, and he or she will be liable to pay damages in case of loss or spoilage. If employees with the institution grossly neglect loans made in accordance with this arrangement, and this is reported to the head of the institution by The Royal Danish Library, the institution must view it as a dereliction of duty to be reviewed according to the rules of the institution.

If the library card has been stolen or lost, the borrower is responsible for any abuse of the card until the library has been notified of this. A fee will be charged for the issue of a replacement for the library card.
