All books in the library are assigned a call number [NL: vindplaats], which can be found on the book spine. The call number represents what the book is about and acts like the book's address on the library's shelves. Because books on the shelves are arranged in call number order, you will find books on similar subjects shelved near each other.

The TiU library holds a separate collection of compulsory literature (books required for TiU courses) called the Student Library [Studentenboekerij=SB]. The SB collection is located on Level 1, in the low grey book shelves past the stairs.
Some SB books are only available online.
Call numbers for compulsory books begin with the collection code, followed by SB and the first four letters of the author's last name. Ex.: ECO SB HARR.
Student library books may only be used in the library. They are not for loan. For most of the SB books there's a duplicate copy that can be checked out.
The answers to these questions can be found on the library's website.
