Loan of items
Users with borrowing privileges who wish to take items on loan should take them to the Information Desk and complete the appropriate loan procedures. Borrowers are responsible for items checked out in their names and are also responsible for informing the Learning Resources and Information, in a timely manner, of any inaccuracies in their current loan records.
Learning Resources and Information staff may recall any item on loan. The borrower of such an item must return it within the time specified in the recall notice.
If the user loses or damages a borrowed item, he/she is liable to pay the full cost of its replacement.
|Collection ||Loan ||Period
Loans may be renewed twice, provided the item has not been requested by another borrower. After that, the item must be returned.
The maximum number of items which a user may borrow at any one time is five.
If an item is not in the collection, any user may ask the Learning Resources and Information to purchase it. The Learning Resources and Information staff have the right to refuse the recommendation if the item does not seem relevant to ITCILO subjects. If a recommendation is accepted, the item will be made available in about four weeks.
Both in-house and outside users may request documentation not held in the Learning Resources and Information through the inter-library loan service. Items received from other libraries may only be consulted in the Learning Resources and Information and may not be taken away for any reason.
Printed periodicals may not be taken on loan but can be consulted in the Learning Resources and Information only. However, an exhaustive list of online periodicals and academic journals is available on the website.
The Learning Resources and Information purchases many commercial electronic resources such as electronic journals and databases.
ITCILO staff may access these electronic resources directly through the LRI website.
