Circulation Service

Due to the government’s decision on a general lockdown, the library will be closed to the public until further notice. 
All loans will be extended until the end of the lockdown and there is no need to return items to the library during this period. Book ordering will not be available during the lockdown, but Home Deliveries will be provided free of charge - maximum one delivery per week per student / faculty member. Please note: Requests for several books should be submitted on the same day.

The Circulation Desk, which is located at the entrance to the library, is responsible for lending library items and discharging them once they are returned, supplying books that were ordered from the shelf or from other readers, and regulating library services to readers.

University of Haifa students and academic/administrative staff are entitled to borrow up to 500 items. MA & PhD students and academic staff from other Israeli institutions of higher education may borrow 5 books at a time and are permitted access to databases. They are required to present a letter of guarantee from the central library at their institution to the Circulation Department.
