    Relocation of books by subject code and number

    This week we will start a relocation project. Books that currently are placed in numerical order (2015: 344), will be relabelled and placed by subject.

    The books will be marked with a subject code and a sequence number, for example V 2011: 1 or Im 2017:20. This will make it easier both to find books by subject, but also to find newly acquired books.

    The relocation of the books are expected to be completed by autumn semester 2018. If you can not find a book on the shelf, please talk to the staff and we will reserve it for you. The book will be available again after it has been relabelled, usually the following day.
