About the Library
About the library
You can borrow books and journals from the University Library of Southern Denmark’s collection. We also offer to obtain materials from other libraries if we do not have the requested materials ourselves. Besides the materials that you can borrow and bring home, the library offers access to a wide variety of databases.
The library is a public library, which means that everyone can get access to the library.
Focus on International Business Communication and Business Economics
Our primary focus is to offer service to the students and staff at the campus. Therefore, the campus library’s permanent collection of books and journals also focus on the studies that are offered at campus Slagelse: International Business Communication and Business Economics. The library has a semester shelf where you can find and use the studies’ curriculum literature.
The library has two group rooms (B-1.21 and B-1.22, that you can book via the app ‘SDU Mobile’) as well as several single study seats. On the 2nd floor, you find a quiet zone where you can sit and study (the area has 24/7-access with your study card).
The library also has computers with internet access that you can use to search for materials in databases, journals etc. Furthermore, the library provides access to reference works, bibliographies and encyclopedias.
Use the self-service machine to borrow/pick up and return materials.
At the multi-function machine, you can print, scan and copy.
At the library, you can borrow keys to lockers in which you can store personal belongings.
In our lounge area, you can take a break and relax a bit or play one of the many board games we have at the library. If you find some of the board games interesting it is also possible to borrow and bring them home.
