Welcome, new students! As a new academic year is starting, you might be wondering where to find the readings for your courses. Here are a few starting tips on finding documents in the Library and online.Continue reading “Finding your course readings”
A new addition has been made to our current services to offset the COVID-19 crisis effects on your studies and research. We are starting a scan-on-demand service for the Graduate Institute Library’s printed holdings (on a trial basis and within the limits of our resources).
Please note that copyright law forbids us from scanning and sharing whole books. Our staff can only scan relevant chapters or articles you may need up to a limit of 3 chapters (100 pages).
How to request a scan
For journal articles, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying the title of the journal, its call number (usually “P ./…”) the volume and issue, and the title of the article.
You should receive the requested chapters or articles within 2 working days.

Our repository also allows our researchers to comply with the requirements of their funders who want them to make their research open access. Our colleague Catherine Brendow explains how it works.Continue reading “Archiving the Graduate Institute’s Research”
