Users can borrow material that the FIS library does not have from other libraries in the Republic of Slovenia or from abroad by means of interlibrary loan. The costs of interlibrary loan are charged according to the library price list and the costs of an international interlibrary loan depend on the type of service and the supplier’s price list.

Users can order the material in person or by email ( When placing an order, the user undertakes to:

  • Pay all costs incurred by interlibrary loan upon receipt of the material;
  • Pay all costs even if they do not collect the material;
  • Return the material on time and undamaged. We charge a late fee for exceeding the loan period. In case of damage or loss of material, the user must pay all costs incurred.

The material is collected in person. The material that the library receives in electronic form (e.g. an e-article …) is sent to the user by e-mail.

The loan period for the material and the possibility of extension are determined by the libraries that lend the material. An order that has already been sent to a supplier abroad cannot be cancelled. Cancellation of an order to a Slovenian library is only possible if the supplier library has not sent the material yet.
