The 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.
Specific loan conditions concern foreign and border residents who are not from the Graduate Institute community.
Reminders and Fees
What happens with my data?
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.
Many SLSP libraries are linked together by the SLSP Courier service. You can collect and return media from participating libraries at your library in the Courier network.
This service is free of charge for members of the Graduate Institute community. If you are an external user the charged fee is 6 CHF per medium (Fees table).
Orders from other libraries in the SLSP network are placed via the swisscovery catalogue by following this procedure.
Who is participating in SLSP Courier?
Most of the libraries of the major Swiss academic institutions offer this service. swisscovery allows you to know whether an institution is part of the network.
If your document is not in an SLSP library, request it through an interlibrary loan (ILL).
