The IHS Library

On our floor, we have a multi-functional area comprised of a library and information centre, working areas for students, with photocopy and scanning facilities. It is also possible to view DVDs, slides, and CD-ROMs. There is a data projector where special exercises and digital training can be performed. After hours the area is used for social functions, making use of the bar, television and seating areas. IHS's unique, specialised library has more than 58,000 records registered in an electronic catalogue. Course participants and staff (as well as visitors and researchers) can use the library's resources. However, visitors from outside IHS should contact one of the information managers in advance for an appointment.

IHS students are welcome also to make use of the newly renovated Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) library, which is conveniently located on campus. The University Library has three levels: -1, 0 and +1. These are divided into an east and west side. The East is a quiet area. Here you will find study areas to study individually and quietly. In the West, you can study as well, but also discuss and work together.
