PurposeThe library is primarily designed to serve and support students and researchers at the University of Southern Denmark, in the three disciplines: engineering, communication and social science.
It is also a public library, and as such accessible to everybody.
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.
Library introduction is organized at the beginning of each semester. These can be arranged for groups continuously throughout the semester. It can be at basic, intermediate or expert level on the use of the Library and its various databases.
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, special dictionaries, handbooks and certain journals are, however, only for use on the premises).
The Library is arranged as a 24/7. This means that SDU students and staff can access the Library day and night any day of the week. Hence the term 24/7
