Interlibrary Loan: If the Document is in the RERO Catalogue

How to use the interlibrary loan service at the Graduate Institute

How much time does it take?

8-10 days if the book is in Western Switzerland (RERO catalogue). If the book comes from German-speaking Switzerland or from abroad, the delay varies.

What is my Password?

Your default password, if you never changed it, is the last six digits of your patron number.

If the Document is in the RERO Catalogue

If you cannot find the document you are looking for in the Explore Geneva catalogue, you can search for it in the Explore Union catalogue, covering all Western Switzerland.

Type the title of the document, make sure that it is the document you are looking for, and that it is not in Geneva.
