If the book is out of print and difficult to purchase, please purchase: the same subject (can be identified by title search) and written in the same language (e.g. Foreign-language books are compensated for foreign-language books) and higher than the original price and the publication date of newer books.

      • Method 2. Payment for books and periodicals (Twice the current price for the lost book.)

    3. If the library originally purchased the public presentation edition of the audiovisual material, it will need to purchase the public presentation edition for compensation.
