Circulation

LRC has a huge collection of books, career guides, annual reports, journals and audio-visual material which supports the needs of various users of ISB community and Externals members, including lifelong access to ISB alumni. Users must produce a valid identity card for all circulation services.

The Director, LRC may extend the services to any other category of users as required from time to time and also reserves the right to restrict or deny the use of any of its facilities, resources and services to any authorised user(s) in order to maintain appropriate levels of service.

For enquiries regarding location of material in the library or questions about borrowing materials, please approach the circulation desk or contact us. Circulation policies regarding the loan period, renewals and penalty are dependent on the type of resources and the type of users.
