BORROWING RULES

The loan is personal and non-transferable. 

Most of the IE University Library’s holdings are electronic. You can check them online in our catalog.

You have to self-borrow the materials in the library with DiY IEU Library APP on your own smartphone.

If you have any problem during while self-borrowing, contact a librarian.

Special conditions are announced before each holiday period.  

Some materials are excluded from the loan service, such as any in the Reference and Library-use only sections, printed magazines, or items indicated as such. Items from the PhD shelf location can be taken out on loan only by PhD and DBA students, faculty, and staff.

If there is any inappropriate behavior in the library or with its materials, the Library reserves the right to block any user account, and restrict access to all the services and products the library offers. The user will be always notified in advance.

If you have any problem during while self-borrowing, contact a librarian.

The IE ID Card is necessary to borrow any material. Remember, you need to activate it before taking out your first loan.

The loan service is not available starting half an hour before the library is closed. 

Special conditions are announced before each holiday period.  

Some materials are excluded from the loan service, such as any in the reference and Library-use only sections, printed magazines, or items indicated as such. Items from the PhD shelf location can be taken out on loan only by PhD and DBA students, faculty, and staff.

Archive materials are available, but do not have free access. However, these materials are available to you and can be requested from the library at any time, once you make a hold. If the archive item is at your library’s campus, it will be available within three  days.

If there is any inappropriate behavior in the library or with its materials, IE Library reserves the right to block any user account, and restrict access to all the services and products the library offers. The user will be always notified in advance. 

Renewals can be made through the “User Portal” on the library webpage or the DiY IE Library APP on the Smart Station devices or your own smartphone.
To renew items in the library with the app, you must use your activated IE ID Card.
 
Consecutive renewals are allowed provided that:
  • The user does not have other overdue items or fines pending.
  • The material is not requested by another user.
You must return your borrowed items in the library with the DiY IE Library APP. Leave them on the trolley near the Borrow & Return station. You can also leave them in the drop boxes available.
 
If you do this with your own Android device, confirm your returns at the “Complete your return” point at the Smart Station.
 
You do not need your IE ID Card to return your loans.
 
Fines will continue to accumulate daily on all overdue items until the item is returned or is declared lost by either the borrower or the Library. 
 
You must pay the amount due in the DiY IE Library APP by credit card or PayPal.
The amount raised will go to collaborate in NGO projects, in accordance with IE Library’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
 
If an item is lost during your loan period or returned in poor condition, the holder will be responsible for replacing that item for the library. Please note that some items are rare or no longer in stock. Items considered as such, due to the difficulty in finding them and their high value, will be charged as double their price.
 
Former members of the IE Community who still have materials pending to be returned to IE Library will be excluded from all IE Library services and products indefinitely.
 

The User Portal is your own virtual library space. As an IE Community member, you can access it with your IE credentials (e-mail and password).

You can check your on-loan items and return dates; renew your loans and check how many renewals you have left; place and cancel holds; check for outstanding fines; check and receive your interlibrary loan requests of electronic resources; search the IE Library catalog and WorldCat—the world’s largest library catalog.
