IIBIT Library's goal is to provide an educational environment at the campus. The Library is committed to deliver excellent and flexible services to all students and academic staff.
A wide range of prescribed textbooks and other academic reading materials are available in the Library. The Library holds at least 4 copies of the latest edition of each prescribed textbook for use only inside the Library. However, students are expected to purchase their own textbooks. We also have subscriptions to relevant print magazines such as The Economist, Fortune, and Harvard Business Review along with the daily newspapers: Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, and Financial Review.
IELTS books are also available in the Library to support our international students.
Students may reserve a library book if it has already been borrowed. The book will be given to the first student on the reserved list. The item will be held for 2 days, after which it will be allocated to the next person on the reserved list and you will need to make a new reservation.
A late fee of $1.00 per day will be incurred to your account after the due date (Saturday & Sunday inclusive). Please inform us if you change your contact details (phone number and email address) so that you will not miss the text message or email reminders that the Library will send you when your item is overdue.
*Note: Please return the books on time to avoid penalties.
IIBIT Library has 1 photocopy machine which can be used for printing, photocopy and scanning. However, all IIBIT students can use other allocated photocopy machines around the campus for printing.
There are computers available in the Library and students can use the same passwords as the ones which can be used in the computer labs. Remote internet facility (Wi-Fi) is also available and students can use their own laptops in the Library but you cannot print from the laptops.
*Please note that the Library will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items that belong to students.
