The role of the library


The aim of the library is to support professionally the university in maintaining a supreme international level of quality in the fields of education and research. The library offers various information resources, and librarians are daily supporting students in information retrieval and evaluation in order to, in collaboration with academies and other units, fulfil statements declared in the Higher Education Act and the Bologna Declaration.

Furthermore, the library will examine the emerging needs of our researchers. One of future issues that we are looking at is bibliometric support.

We invite students and university staff to enjoy the library as a meeting place, a comfortable working place and, last but not least, a pedagogical resource.
