Real-time occupancy

At the library, you can seek assistance from trained personnel at the information desk. Our talented students work during evenings, weekends, and public holidays. In our self-service area near the information desk, you can take care of many tasks yourself, such as borrowing, returning, and collecting requested books. You can also search for books, book group study rooms, view maps, and more on the touchscreens at the self-service area. Of course, you can also receive help via chat and email.

Do you have a question about information searching? Then we can sit down with you for a while and go through your question. If you have a more extended question, it may be useful to book a consultation  with a librarian.
