Additional aids for your convenience, with the aim of providing you better service: A slot for returning books outside the library; can be used even when library is closed Stations to connect laptops; Wireless Network A bulletin board for updated information about the library, new books and interesting newspaper excerpts dealing with fields of study at IDC; Library website which includes online catalog, links to information banks and favorite websites Spacious and comfortable reading rooms; A discussion hall - In this room, contrary to any other place in the library, groups can meet, discuss and study together. However, it is important to emphasize that the library rules, listed below, still apply in this hall.
Getting Acquainted with the Library The library will provide you with diverse services to assist you during your studies at IDC: Comfort and quiet, for studying, for preparing for lessons and for exams; Borrowing books for academic purposes; Photocopying services: a large and well-ventilated photocopy room, with many modern copying machines and printers. Approximately 100 computers connected to the internet as well as the library's extensive catalog and electronic databases. IDC Herzliya's library is a new and enlarged building established for the purpose of operating as an "Information Center" for the entire campus. The acquisition of books and printed journals no longer sufficient for modern research and study requirements. In order to cope with these requirements we have combined a traditional library comprising books and journals with computerized databases. We place special emphasis on electronic resources – their acquisition and training students to utilize them.
Computerized Databases The library's computer network includes many databases in the field of law, business, social sciences, etc. The database you will be using most frequently will probably be the computerized library catalog (Aleph) which locates books throughout the library. The computerized catalog can also be accessed via the Internet (from any off-campus computer). In addition to the 100 computers in the library, there are another 60 units located in the computer labs throughout the campus. Access to all databases are free for all IDC students and faculty. In addition to different databases you can browse the Internet where you will find abundant academic databases in all fields and access to catalogs of various libraries in Israel and abroad. Beyond the amount of knowledge and services, each library is judged according to its atmosphere and the conditions provided to its users. Therefore, the librarians strictly uphold the rules of conduct detailed in the Library Regulations found in the "Yedion". The purpose of these rules is to maintain an atmosphere that will enable everyone to study under the best possible conditions. Library website:
Some Key Library Rules Maintain quiet (use of cellular phones is forbidden); Group work allowed only in the Discussion Hall but in no other part of library; Smoking, eating and drinking are all prohibited. Do not bring bags and satchels into the library area. Leave them in the cloakroom at entrance to library; Keep the library clean; Maintain equipment in the library, do not damage or mark the books; Do not remove any material from the library without approval and going through the proper borrowing procedure. Method of Borrowing The borrowing procedure is simple and is done with a student card, which is personal and cannot be transferred to other individuals. Every student is entitled to borrow a maximum of three books and two CD-ROMs at one time. Strictly adhere to returning the books by 17:00 on the noted date of return. Every late return incurs a fine. The period of borrowing can be extended through the Internet. Library Hours: Sun thru Thurs – 08:30-21:00 Fri – 08:00-13:00 Holiday Eves – 08:00-12:00
