About the Library

You can borrow any of the books and journals belonging to the University Library of Southern Denmark from the campus library in Esbjerg.
If we don’t have the material you require ourselves, we will try to borrow it from another library at home or abroad.

The SDU library’s standard collection of books and journals has a primary focus on servicing students and employees within Sociology, Business Economics and Public Health. The library is therefore physically grouped within these research areas. The library’s collection also contain literature within the areas of methodology, law, environmental and resource management, and sports psychology.
