Download the VPN and login to access our electronic resources
If you are not on campus, download and use the VPN to access our electronic resources, including e-books, e-journals and databases.
Carry your student multi-services card with you on campus
Your student card is also your library card and you will need it to borrow books and to print, copy and scan. The card can also be used to open the Library bubbles (team working spaces) and access the building (Petal 2) on Sundays.
Remember to update your card regularly at the Institute’s reception or at the cafeteria’s main entrance.
