§2 Borrowing authorization
(1) The following persons are entitled to borrow:
- Members of the Medical University of Graz
- Students of other Austrian universities and colleges,
- Any person whose primary residence is in Austria and for whom a user account for the MedUni Graz Library in MedOnline has been set up,
- Any person whose primary residence is not in Austria and for whom a user account for the MedUni Graz Library in MedOnline has been set up.
(2) Minors additionally require a declaration of consent and liability from their legal guardian.
(3) Borrowing authorization is activated and documented with a valid student ID for students, with a photo ID and verification in MedOnline for medical university staff, with a valid employee ID for employees of the KAGes at the LKH-Klinikum Graz, as well as with a photo ID in combination with a residential registration form for general users.
(4) The transfer of authorization data as well as the transfer of materials to other persons are not permitted and do not constitute exclusion of liability of the authorized borrower.
(6) The borrowing of resources from the library’s textbook collection is only permitted for students.
(7) The observance of copyrights and other intellectual property rights is the sole responsibility of the user. Therefore the user expressly undertakes to compensate the Medical University of Graz for any costs arising from a judicial or out-of-court legal dispute resulting from his/her illegal duplication of the borrowed works, regardless of title, and thus indemnifies and holds MedUni Graz harmless against all claims. Furthermore, it is to be brought to the attention of the borrower that the Library of the Medical University of Graz does not examine the data carriers for possible computer viruses and, therefore, the Library of the Medical University of Graz assumes no liability or guarantee for any damage (such as viruses, loss of data), which may result from installation.
(8) Books can be acquired from the cost centre of the organizational units and/or subunits, in adherence to the acquisition guidelines, by means of the library. These books can then be set up in the respective organizational units/subunits (“institute library”). The extent to which these materials can be borrowed by students or university members lies in the authority of the respective head of the organizational unit/subunit.
