Who can borrow library materials?

The libraries are organized primarily to serve the Bilkent student body, and academic and administrative staff. However, users from outside Bilkent are also welcome to use the Library, but most do not have borrowing rights. For more information, please see the Library Rules for Bilkent Alumni and Library Rules for Special Users on the Library website.

I am not a member of Bilkent University. How can I use the library?

Bilkent University Library serves outside users. Most outside users do not have borrowing rights but they can copy library material at the Photocopy Center. Academics from other universities with which Bilkent has a “protocol” agreement can borrow library materials. In some instances, “Special User” membership may be given to certain outside users. Otherwise, outside users can access Bilkent University Library sources by applying through the “Inter-Library Loan (ILL)” service of their own university library. For further information, please see Bilkent University Library Rules for Inter-Library Loan (ILL).
