Get to know how the library works!

All students are welcome to get a library orientation at the beginning of the semester. Take advantage of the offer - it will give you an easier start. The library also offers courses in the use of the databases that we subscribe to. Training is often related to the tasks you're working on, but you can also inquire at the counter if you need guidance on using some of the sources of information that you find on our website.
