Resources Information 

A wide range of prescribed textbooks and other academic reading materials are available in the Library. The Library holds at least 3 copies of the latest edition of each prescribed textbook. The latest edition prescribed textbooks are available only as reference books for use in the Library room. However, a limited number of the latest edition prescribed textbooks are available for overnight loan and must be returned within 24 hours. Students are expected to purchase their own prescribed textbooks.

We also have subscriptions to relevant print magazines such as Harvard Business Review along with the daily newspapers: The Australia, and Financial Review.

IELTS books are also available in the library to support our international students.

  • As an IIBIT student and staff, your ID card is your library card and you must have a current card.
  • Students are not allowed to borrow books using another student’s card. As it is a breach of IIBIT policy, the ID cards will be confiscated.
  • Students are allowed to borrow only 2 reading materials including IELTS material at a time for a maximum period of 2 weeks. Please note that prescribed textbooks will only be available for use within the library. However, older or earlier editions of the same textbook titles are available for borrowing.
  • Books can be renewed only once. Renewal is only for one week and permitted only when the item is not in high demand.

Hold Requests

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.

Late Fee

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 loan is overdue.

*Note: Please return the books on time to avoid penalties.


Photocopy, Printing, Scanning and Computers

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 located around the campus for printing.

There are computers available in the library and students can use the same passwords that are used to log in to PCs in the computer labs. Remote internet facility (Wi-Fi) is also available and students can use their own laptops in the library. However, it is not possible to print from the laptops.

*Please note that the library will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items that belong to students.
