Contracts can vary greatly and arise from a large number of circumstances. For example, intangible assets may be library subcontracts (e.g.B. Other examples may be user contracts for the loan of objects, extensions, fees, fines or royalties, as well as royalties contained in a contract for a music library, etc. In other cases, library contracts reflect the continuity of a long-standing library service for the good of all residents of the library district, which is regularly negotiated with local authorities, city councillors, boards of directors, etc. .
