Admission Process at the ANAMED and NIT Libraries

ANAMED and NIT Libraries are open only for users who have submitted the ANAMED and NIT Libraries Joint Membership Form and received membership approval (Koç University members do not need to fill the membership and appointment forms). The library is open to users only by appointment. Users who have renewed and confirmed their membership could forward their appointment requests to the library managers by submitting the ANAMED and NIT Library Usage Appointment Form. The users whose appointment request is approved will be informed by an e-mail from the library. Users who do not have a confirmation e-mail will not be accepted to the premises. Appointment requests are confirmed within two days at the latest, depending on the seating capacity available. At the entrance of the ANAMED building, all users will have to provide HES codes, as well as their vaccination cards, or, alternatively, negative PCR test results from the last 72 hours. Users must be fully vaccinated or have a negative PCR-test result. Users who fail to meet these requirements will not be admitted to the library, even if they have an approved appointment. ANAMED and NIT Members may use the ANAMED Library Block A and NIT Library as a working area. B Block study area is reserved for Koç University members.
