How do you find the book you are looking for?
The search for a book, a journal or an article is always conducted either in the ULB catalogue [de] or in the search portal disco. There, you can identify the location and the shelfmark of the desired item. On the “Search” page, you will find all our important catalogues and subject specific databases for further research. It is, of course, possible to use our catalogues, databases and online publications (e-books, e-journals, etc.) at home or while travelling.
