The Coursebook Library

The Coursebook library is a department at the library and books marked as belonging to it in the library system are located at the reception desk. The Coursebook library contains a copy of all textbooks used in undergraduate programmes during the current semester, in addition to selected books used in graduate programmes. The books are only loaned for use on campus and should not be taken home. Generally, coursebooks are only lent out for that one day, except on Fridays, students can borrow coursebooks over the weekend but they need to be returned before 9 am on Monday. Books can always be returned earlier over the weekend in the return box in the library.

The Coursebook library also contains a few books that are valuable to the library but which have not been reserved for use in individual courses. For information about which of these works can be borrowed, turn to the reception desk employee.
