All the members of the NTUA and the public in general have access to the Central Library and its material (printed or electronic).
All the members of the NTUA and the NTUA Alumni have loan and inter-library-loan right after obtaining a Library card.
The NTUA Alumni may have loan and inter-library loan right after becoming members of the library and obtaining the annual library card. The amount of payment, as far as the membership fee is concerned, is 30€ per year, which has been amended after the library’s suggestion and the Library Committee’s decision.
In the entrance (reception desk), the users can obtain a key for a locker where they have to put their bags. Laptop bags (cases) are allowed inside the library, but not the larger backpacks. The users bear personal responsibility for the care and loss of high cost items such as wallets, money, laptops etc. Users with health problems are being excluded.
In the library, quiet must be kept, smoking is not allowed as well as the consumption of food and beverages except water. It is also necessary to respect the library’s property (PCs, photocopying machines, furniture, books etc.)
The users that are interested in using the electronic equipment (PCs) have to create a personal account to the central server “central.ntua.gr” of the NTUA.
All users can use the photocopying machines by inserting a special magnetic card which is provided by a coin machine and costs 1.50 Euro, valid for 50 photocopies.
All users can use the Group Study Rooms, provided the group consists of at least three (3) students. Maximum use of the room is limited to three (3) hours per group with the right of a one (1) hour extension, provided the demand is not increased. By the end of the pre-specified time, the users must be informed by the library staff for further usability of the room.
Users that are looking for extensive literature search, can use the library tools or ask for guidance from the Information desk.
Users should not place back on the shelves any material they have used; instead they must place it on the tables and carrels, or other places indicated by the library staff.
Users with inappropriate behaviour towards staff and inconsistent with the regulation of the library, are excluded from using the library and its services. In the case of a member of the academic staff, or technical and administrative staff is the cause of inappropriate behaviour, this is referred to the Senate.
