The Library of the University of Crete, participating in "IRIS" the InterLibrary Loan Service of books of Greek Academic Libraries, serves the students and the teachers of the HOU by lending them material. Each one can borrow up to 4 books for 20 days if picking is done on the spot and for 30 days if the material is sent, with the possibility of a renewal. Borrowers must comply with the rules of the library of Rethymno and Hrakleio branches, regarding the handling of rare books or material found in a limited number of copies.
In order to borrow books you must fill in and send electronically a Book InterLibrary Loan Request Form to the HOU Library.
Also borrowers can have the books sent to their residential address by a courier service. In that case HOU users bear the cost of the shipment and return of the books.
The borrowed material is sent to the library of the HOU which, in turn, will send it to the borrower's residential address (unless he/she can pick it up from the premises of the HOU library).
