Search library resources

There are various search strategies you can choose from to search our library resources, and there is not necessarily a best strategy.

We highly recommend that you have a look at the Research Guides to familiarize yourself with a particular topic. These guides give an overview of the principal publications on that topic.

You can also go to the Library's reading room and have a look at the book shelves there. The most important publications are always available on these shelves.

If you want to go further, you have to make use of our catalogue. Through the catalogue, you can search our entire collection, most of which is located in the stacks in the basement.

Our electronic publications are also included in the catalogue. However, it is always recommended to have a look at the relevant databases and use the search option of the database itself.

The Library provides a brief course on effective searching of literature, jurisprudence and legislation; this course is free of charge.
