The user may borrow books from other collaborative academic libraries by carrying out an online search of the item via the online «ΖΕΦΥΡΟΣ» library catalogue , through which access to virtually any academic library is granted. Terms for Inter-library loan (loaning period, fines etc.) are dependant on the collaborating libraries concerned. Time delivery varies between 1 to 2 weeks. The ASFA does not hold itself responsible for any delays. Upon arrival of the item at the library, the user will be notified via telephone or e-mail. Delivery and return of the item is done by courier and the receiver is charged for any expenses. The item must be returned to the ASFA library loan desk on time. Failure to do so will result in an overdue fine charged by the collaborative library.
