EUI-associated users (former EUI members, partners and short-term EUI visitors)
All former EUI members (including researchers, fellows, faculty and administrative staff) who have been members of the Institute for at least one academic year are considered EUI-associated users.They may continue to use the library when in Florence after completing the application procedure. However, only those resident in Florence may continue to have borrowing rights, with a maximum of 10 loans at anyone time. Their borrowing rights are renewed on an annual basis from January to December. Should former EUI members fail to return books to the library within the allotted time or pay any fines incurred, their borrowing privileges will be withdrawn.
Partners of current EUI members may request access to the Library for the duration of their partner's grant or contract.
Short-term visitors who are at the EUI seminars, conferences, thesis defences, interviews or Institute meetings and who wish to use the Library, should ask their EUI hosts to provide them with a short-term Library Pass.
