The Graduate Institute Library is a scientific and specialised library, whose aim is to support the research and teaching mission of the Institute.

Its collection development policies are regularly reviewed and updated, according to the evolution of the faculty and research centres.

Subject librarians, each of them being in charge of a specific field, select documents for developing the collections.

Titles appearing in the course syllabi are systematically purchased, in paper or digital version when available.

Purchase proposals are also welcome:
