E-books

In the library catalogue you will find a customized e-books collection, including a small part of compulsory literature. The library follows a policy for compulsory literature: there is always one copy available for consultation in the library. A second copy is available for borrowing, but obviously not meet the huge demand of numerous students! For e-books the same as for paper books, the library in most cases guarantees availability but do not provide licenses for access to all students.
