Deletion of inactive members in the libraries of the University of Maribor
As from 2011, the University Library of Maribor and the Faculty Libraries of the University of Maribor, which form the KISUM library information system, have started to delete inactive members from their member base. The inactive members encompass those members who have not been using their library services for a year, and the members whose membership expired at least a year (or more) ago. Deleted are only the members, who have settled all their liabilities towards all the libraries of the University of Maribor.
Deletion of the inactive members is imposed on the libraries by law, connected with the protection of personal data, while the conditions and the deletion criteria are determined by the Librarianship Act.
From October 2005 on, Degree Papers are available in electronic format on the Internet via COBISS. The older Degree Papers are not available over the Internet.
