The campus library administrates the loan of books and journals from both its own collections and the other collections of the University Library of Southern Denmark. We also borrow materials from other libraries at home and abroad.
In addition to user guidance and the provision of literature, the library’s work includes the selection, acquisition, classification and cataloguing of books and journals within the campus library’s subject areas. New books and journals are prepared for loan and bound.
The staff carries out tasks within all subject areas and work processes.
The library’s permanent stock of books and journals is primarily focused on serving students and researchers within the areas of the social sciences.
The library’s collection within business economics includes, for example, material on business and finance, organisation and management, marketing, accounting, auditing, tax law, statistics and IT.
Within the field of business language, the collection contains fiction in English, Danish, French and Spanish. There are also general dictionaries, special dictionaries as well as material covering linguistics and communication.
Scandinavian and English are new study programmes in Kolding, which means that the collection in these areas is still under development. The library also contains material within the areas of comparative literature and the history of literature.
A good deal of the library’s stock of books and journals is directly accessible on open shelves so you can fetch the books you want to borrow yourself. (Bibliographies, reference works, handbooks and certain journals are, however, only for use on the premises).
There is a photocopier so that you can make self-service photocopies.
There are a few study areas at the library.
There are a number of computers with Internet access for searching in the library’s catalogue, other library catalogue, databases, journals, etc.
There is also a plentiful collection of handbooks, bibliographies and reference works at the library.
