Compulsory literature (student library)

Mandatory literature in the  University Library 

The library has compiled separate collections (SB, Student Books) of compulsory course literature, for the following collections:

  • Economics and Business Administration (ECO SB)
  • Law (JUR SB)
  • Social sciences (SOC SB)
  • Language and literature (LET SB)
  • Philosophy (CIF SB)
  • Theology and religious studies (TFL SB)
  • Liberal Arts (LA SB). 

If possible, compulsory literature is available as an e-book, but this is not an option for all titles. Sometimes e-books come with restrictions for simultaneous access, printing and/or downloading.

Location codes

The location code of a Student Book can be found in the catalog (WorldCat Discovery).

The location code for a book in the SB library starts with the collection code, followed by SB and the first four characters of the author's name. For example: ECO SB HARR. Books from the SB library can only be used within the library and are not available for loan. For most of the SB books there is a duplicate copy in the regular collection that can be borrowed  for two weeks. The title then mentions two different holdings: one in the SB collections, and one in the regular collections.

The SB library is situated on the first floor of the library,  the regular collections on the second floor.
