Searching the collection

The entire collection can be searched via the online catalogue (OPAC). Searches can be carried out by author, title, keyword and also topically with keywords. The required book can be selected from a list of search results; the full detailed view shows the call number of the book, which gives the location in the shelves. Search criteria are linked to each other, so it's possible to click and see what other titles are available by the same author or on a particular topic.

Another way to search for literature about a certain topic is to go directly to the shelf containing material on the desired subject area.
