You may find the Titles on the Library’s OPAC for which the Status is “Future”. It means the book is ‘Under Technical Processing’. Such titles can be consulted on the Library premises for a short period. Please contact Library Staff to get such titles for consultation/photocopying of its portion.
If the resource is not on the stock of the NULRCs it can be borrowed from other Institutional Libraries (limited to some libraries). On ascertaining the non-availability of the item in the NU Libraries, you are advised to fill-up DELNET ILL Request Form the details of the needed item and forward it to the Librarian after getting a signature from the respective HOD. Generally we get the material within a week. The cost of photocopying and courier charges will have to be borne by the user. Alternatively if the book/resource is useful to many other users of Nirma University it can be added to the NULRCs stock through the Department Head’s recommendation. Please use the Book Recommendation Form to suggest a Title for addition. Contact Library Staff at Circulation Desk for further help.
An authorised user can send the request for subscription of a new journal through the Head of the Department/Centre (However, this is subject to the availability of funds with the library.)
No – The Library does not allow to use someone else’s Library Card at NULRCs.
If any student has misplaced/lost their Library / Identity card they have to report the same, in writing, to the Head of the Student section with a copy to the Librarian. Such students will be required to produce a copy of request for duplicate card given to student section and a photo ID proof.
If any faculty/staff has lost their I-card please inform the library so that no misuse happens and also inform respective administrative department for issue of a new card.
In such a case, you must immediately report the details of the lost item to the Library Staff. You will be required to replace the lost book with a new copy within a week. For any reason, if the book is not available in the market then you would have to pay the library three times the cost of the lost book.
