How to find a book in the library

Our guestblogger Elisabeth enables us to find books in the library, but how does one go about to actually find them?

If you want to find a book in the library, the best way to start is to search for the book at our web page. By doing so you will find out at which shelf in the library the book is to be found at, and also if the book is available or not.

When you have done your search for the book, you will get a list of results with all the documents that match your search criterias. Choose the book you want by clicking it. A new window will open, containing more information about the book:

When you arrive to the right floor, search for the right shelf by looking at the signs at the start/end of each shelf.

When you have located the right shelf, find the right section of the shelf. The sections are arranged in numerical order:

Once you found the right section it’s time to look for the actual book. The books are placed alphabetically according to the spine labels:

You should now have the book in your hand, if not and you want some help finding it – please ask a librarian for help. You can always find a librarian willing to help you at the information point by the entrance to the library.
