SMS Renowal

Service Description

With this service, the user can renew the time limit on their loan, for an equal amount of time, by sending a text message via mobile phone or via an online text message service.

The text message renewal is an alternative way to renew a loan. You can also use the online renewal, via the Library’s Catalogue.

How to Access this Service

All loans can be renewed by the same period of time. This should be carried out by the user him or herself, by sending a text message via mobile phone.

To renew a loan:

  • the documents cannot be overdue;
  • there cannot be any other users' reservations on that document;
  • you cannot have renewed the loan three consecutive times.

After you send a text message, you will receive a text message stating if the operation was or was not successful. The current cost of the text message is 0.07€, which will be charged on the service quota.
