Borrow, renew and return library materials

Borrow

The Télécom Paris’ library contains a collection of more than 20 000 books. It is one of the most important and specialized libraries on digital technology and telecommunications in France.

You can borrow most of the documents there (except the latest magazine and newspaper).
The documents that are located in the archives are available 24h after filling out the form (which you can also find at the welcome desk).

Return

To return documents via the self service station, click on “Return” (you don’t need your student card for this) and then put the book on the trolley next to it.
If the library is closed, you can put the documents inside the return box that is located outside the library (next to the entry).

Renew

You have 3 solutions:

  • If you want to renew a loan before the end of the 4 week loan period, you can do so online from our online catalog (Koha) after logging in to “Consultez votre compte” https://catalogue-bibliotheques.imt.fr/
  • With your student card, use the option “Renew” on the self service station next to the welcome desk inside the library.
  • If you are a day late, the online renewal solution as well as the renewal on the self service station will be blocked.
    You need to go to the welcome desk and see with the librarian.
Overdue loans

After the library has sent you three overdue notices, your borrowing rights will be suspended until you return the loan.
