Yes, you may visit other libraries to access information resources that are not available in the library.
The Reference Section issues referral letters to those who wish to perform research in other libraries and research agencies. Reference interviews are conducted by the Access and Client Relations Librarian or the Library Assistant before the patrons are given referral letters. The interview aims to determine the purpose of the visit and to confirm if the student has exhausted all resources available in Library.
All bona fide members of the Institute are eligible to request for referral letters at least one day before the intended date of visit to other libraries or research agencies. Referrals are issued subject to the visiting schedule and policies set by the institution visited.
To request for a referral letter, bring your school identification card and fill out a form at the Reference Section, 3rd floor of the Library. Or you may fill out the online form here.

* Name of student
* Research topic
* Date of visit
* Name of library intended to visit
