Services during COVID

Dear Alliance students and Library users,

We hope you are safe and in good health. Thank you for the continued support and cooperation shown over the past couple of months.

Following the government’s SOPs with regard to Covid-19, the library will be reopening its lending service from 19th July 2021, and operating from Mon-Sat from 8:30 am to 4 pm.

To help us provide you with smooth and efficient services, we would request you to follow the below-mentioned procedure:

Returning of books: You can easily return library documents at the AFD’s front gate with the security guards. Boxes have been placed there to keep returns simple and easy. These boxes are left untouched for the following 3 days (as a precautionary measure against COVID 19) and then disinfected, following which, they are brought to the library and returned from your library accounts.

Borrowing of books: You need to first reserve the document (Books, CDs, DVDs, etc.) from our online library catalogue. Before asking for any reserved document/reserving any document, ensure that your account is clear with us, i.e., no document is due to be returned to your account. In case your account still has a document not returned, you need to first return it, before borrowing a new one.

Kindly bring your library cards along on the day you come to collect the reserved documents.

Here, we would like to reiterate, that the AFD is following all necessary precautions.

Please find information below on the steps to be followed to make a Reservation from OPAC (online catalogue):


Step 1: Opac page opens Select ‘Delhi‘ from ‘Médiathèques du réseau’

Step 2: Enter your ‘Library card number’ followed by password in ‘Se Connecter’

(Note: the default password is the 4 digits of your year of birth, which can be changed after logging in).

Step 3: After successfully logging in, click on ‘ Mesprêts / Mesréservations,’ displaying a list of all your borrowings and reservations.

Step 4: Click on ‘Réserver un document‘ at the end of the page. The document reservation menu will open; you may now search for the document you want by typing the Document name/Author’s name/Topic.  You can also select the ‘Type of document’ from the drop-down list.

Step 5: After finding the desired document, click on ‘Reserver‘ on the document menu’s bottom right corner. Click on ‘OK’ when the reservation confirmation dialogue box appears.

To check the status of the document’s reservation, click on ‘Mes reservation’ from the left-hand side of the page, below your name; scroll down ‘AccèsRapide’ and select. Here you can see your reservation.

Click on ‘Se déconnecter’ to disconnect.

You will then have to wait until our librarians validate it and give you a call for confirmation.

In case your reservation is unsuccessful after following the above steps, you can still reserve your documents by calling us at our contact numbers 011-43500-221 / 011-43500-237

or write an email to [email protected].

Please note:

Documents need to be reserved at least 3 days to 1 week in advance to be organized by the library.

After preparing the documents according to your request, you will receive a call from the library regarding the availability / non-availability of documents.

After confirming your reservation, you will be provided a time slot to collect the documents from the AFD’s front gate.

We will try our best to give you a pleasant experience!

Thank you
