For external users: The Library offers the opportunity to pick up and return documents at the reception of the Graduate Institute (Petal 1, ground floor. Monday to Friday, 11am to 4:30pm) To borrow books, please fill the request form.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation and remain at your disposal should you need assistance.
On December 7, 2020, the Graduate Institute Library has joined the new SLSP library network, which includes 475 Swiss libraries.
As a Graduate Institute Library user, you now have access to the collections of these libraries.
Existing RERO user data will not be migrated to swisscovery. This includes your personal information as well as reservations and loan history.
New Loan Conditions
Reminders and Fees
As of December 7, 2020, you will no longer be able to use your current reader account to access the Library loan services.
However, you will still be able to continue to consult your old reader account, in particular if you borrowed documents before December 7. These documents will remain visible in your old account until you return them. You will continue to receive reminders and statement fees from your old account until you have returned all the documents in your old account, even if you have been using your new SLSP account since December 7.
Your old reader account will be definitively closed in March 2021.
On registration, SLSP imports your personal data (names, addresses, telephone numbers, see General Privacy Statement SLSP) from your SWITCH edu-ID account into the new swisscovery research portal. Your consent to your data being passed on to SLSP is obtained during the registration process.
You can change your personal data at any time in your SWITCH edu-ID account or institution/university. The changes are automatically transmitted to swisscovery. Library specific data such as borrowed media, orders and fees are recorded directly in swisscovery.
You can delete your user account at any time, provided that there are no open transactions (borrowed media or fees). To do this, delete your SWITCH edu-ID account or contact SLSP via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transaction data is regularly anonymised and accounts in swisscovery are erased after 10 years of inactivity.
Documents can be sent back by post to the following address:
Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies Library
Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2
