1. How do I become a user?
To borrow print media: every student and member of staff of the ESCP can become a user once they have been registered by the library staff. Therefore, you will need to visit the library in house B, room B023. Bring your student-ID with you, and we will create your account. To read and use digital resources you are already registered. Please visit SO' Libraries and login to access them (same login data as for myschool).

Have a look on-site or on the online catalogue. Choose the books you want to borrow, hand them over with your student-ID at the Service & Information Desk, and the library staff will book the media on your account.

You can return media inside the library during opening hours. Hand them in at the Library Service & Information Desk. In case the library is closed, you can use the book drop box outside the library entrance (during campus opening hours only).

There is a sustainable book scanner for free at your service that we highly recommend to use. You can send the document to your email address or save the scanned documents on a USB stick. Copy/printing machines can be found in the student work room/PC-Pool (B019 and B125). They are free to use. Please respect our paperless policy on campus.
