  • Identify the documents you wish to request, by searching in the Library’s Catalogue and going to the floor attendant at the help desk;
  • Present the your user’s card;
  • Fill in the "Special Requests form" (PDF | 92 kb).
  • After your request is evaluated – and approved – the documents must be handed in at the scheduled day/hour.
