    User Card

    All registered users of LIC who hold a valid user card have the right to borrow material. The user card is strictly personal and issued by LIC at the request of the user. One-time reissue of the user card after it has been declared lost, is possible by showing their student’s identity or normal id (for exterior users). Reissuing user card for the second time is charged with the amount of 5 Euros. The reissue of the user card for the third time brings a six penalty suspension of the right to use LIC services.

    To request the issuing of a Library card, please complete this form and either send it via mail (press the button Submit form to send it to info@lis.upatras.gr) or print it and deliver it to the Circulation desk. Your card will be ready in a couple of working days.
