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.
Did you know we filled the library printers with 550’000 sheets of A4 paper in 2017? That’s up from 450’000 in 2016, and, well, it’s probably way too much. What can be done about this?
When you need a book or article not available in Geneva, you should consider using our interlibrary loan (ILL) service. Our colleagues Martine Basset and Marc Le Hénanf are in contact with libraries all around the world and can provide you with documents within days.
Some books and journals in our collection are bound for longer conservation or general repairs. Linda Leger, our librarian in charge of bookbinding, tells us how, why, and by whom this is done, just as she passes the baton to Martine Basset.
