Rules for Lending Service
The Library Lending Service is provided for MAICSA Student members.
Please fill in the Library Lending Membership card if you wish to borrow any books from the library. You are required to submit 3 copies of recent photographs (preferably driving license size) for the processing of your Library Lending Membership card and Borrowers' Tickets.
Student members are required to pay a deposit of RM100.00 for the Lending Service, which is refundable only after 1 year from the date of registration and upon request for termination of the service. Request for the termination of the Lending Service must be acknowledged in writing in which you need to state your reason for terminating yourself from the Library Lending Service Membership. Together with your letter, you have to submit the Borrowers' tickets for the processing of the refund. Failing to submit these items, you will only be partially refunded.
Two Borrowers' Tickets will be issued to students whose applications for Library Lending Membership have been approved. The Borrowers' Tickets can be processed immediately, provided all the required information given in the Lending Membership Card are correct and verified.
Student members must notify the library of any change in their current addresses and telephone numbers or employers, if any, so that the Library Lending Membership record is always kept up-to-date.
Student members are allowed to borrow two books at a time for the duration of three weeks.
The due dates may be extended for a further period of one week. When requesting for loan extension, student members must quote the due date and the accession number as per indicated on the inside front cover of the book. Loan extension will be allowed if the books are not requested or reserved by any other members. Loan extension can be made either in person, via the telephone or e-mail to library@maicsa.org.my.
Every student member is responsible for any books borrowed under his or her name and will be liable for any damage or loss of books borrowed. Please report lost or damage of books or materials immediately to the library. No member should mark or damage any books or other documents in any way.
A borrower will be charged the full cost of the book for every book lost, plus 10% of the book price (i.e. to cover the library processing cost for the book). The affected member will not be allowed to borrow any more books until such cost has been reimbursed.
Student members will be fined RM 1.00 per day for each book that is overdue. Borrowers' Tickets are not transferable and must be produced for every loan transaction. You are required to come personally for all book transactions made under your name.
The library also provides Book Reservation service. A student member who wishes to reserve any book for borrowing may do so, upon availability of the book, the intending borrower will be notified.
Loss of Borrowers' Ticket must be reported immediately to the library, so that a replacement card can be processed. If the old card is recovered, the member must return it to the library. The cost for one replacement card is RM 5.00.
All the books with red labels are not for borrowing. However, certain reference books may be allowed for borrowing under a special arrangement. Annual reports, periodicals /journals, and newspaper cuttings are for reference only. The Library also keeps CDs on MAICSA events which may be lent out upon request. Please consult the Library staff for further details.
Lapsed student members will be temporarily suspended from the Library Lending Service until their MAICSA student membership is renewed.
MAICSA Resource Centre reserves the right to cancel or suspend the Library Lending Membership of any member for misconduct which includes contravention of any of these rules and failure to return books after the third notice.
Students who wish to use their personal notebooks in the Library are required to sign the “Letter of Undertaking for: Use of Personal Notebook at MAICSA Office”.
