Who can borrow ?

  • HEC Paris users are allowed to borrow materials (books, textbooks, thesis, dvds ..) and / or devices (eReaders, tablet PCs)
  • External readers and HEC Paris alumni who have a annual subscription with the library can also borrow materials.

* See conditions of our Terms of Access

How many documents can I borrow ?

The type of documents, as well as the number of copies and the duration of the loan depend on the status and borrowing rights of the user.

However, some documents, such as magazines, newspapers, some directories, theses or dictionaries are not available for loan.

These documents are marked as "on site consultation" (consultation sur place ) in the library Catalogue


How to borrow a document ?

You need to bring with you :

  • a student card if you are an HEC Paris student or participant or a student from other educational institutions
  • your CCIR badge if you are an HEC Paris staff member
  • your library card for participants of short programs, faculty and external users
  • or failing that, an ID  (identity card, passport, driving license).


Documents must be returned on or before the due date noted in the back of the document

Any delay in the return of the documents will result in a suspension period equivalent to the period of lateness.

Any documents or materials damaged or not returned will be charged to the user.

For more information, please see: Terms of Use
