Literature Search (This section is being remodelled)

Use our OPAC to find books and periodicals available in our library. In addition, our holdings can also be found in union catalogues:

 

When using our OPAC, please observe the following basic instructions.

And do not hesitate to ask your librarian in person, by e-mail or by phone.

Simple Search

Type in your search terms (1 in the figure below) and hit the magnifier icon (2) or Enter.

 

OPAC Simple Search

 

You will get one or more titles for which the search terms occur in any field (author's name, title, keywords, subjects, abstract, etc.).

 

OPAC Results

 

Click then on one of the titles (4) to see its detailed record. Clicking here on show details (5), the title's Call Number is shown (6). Use now the book's Call Number to find its shelf location.

Advanced Search

Clicking on advanced search (3 in the first figure above), you will get a search form. Here, you can type in your search terms in specific fields, e.g. words from the title or the author's name, as well as keywords and subjects, publisher's name or yet year of publication.

 

       

      Important Notes on the Search in the Library OPAC

      • Never type in function words, especially prepositions, such as of, for, with. Otherwise, this OPAC is not able to find titles in the system. Thus, for the title 'Fundamentals of Corporate Finance', type in only fundamentals corporate finance.
      • Non-Sensitive Case Search: You can type in your search words in upper (Fundamentals) or lower case (fundamentals).
      • Automatic Right-Hand Truncation: Word beginnings are sufficient for the search in this OPAC. For example, the search string funda corpo fina finds the just mentioned title 'Fundamentals of Corporate Finance'.
      • Left-Hand Truncation: Use an asterisk (*). For example, the search term *logy finds 'psychology', 'antology', 'methodology', etc.
      • Wildcards are not available: Search terms as colo?r or m??er lead in our OPAC to null results. When the needed word is spelled differently (e.g. 'color' and 'colour') or when you do not know the correct spelling (e.g. 'Meyer', 'Mayer', 'Meier'), you have to do more than one search.
      • Automatic Boolean Operator AND: In this OPAC, a search string such as product graphic results titles for which both product AND graphic occur.
      • Boolean Operators OR and NOT are not available: This OPAC cannot handle search strings such as product OR graphic (= find titles with product OR graphic OR both) and product NOT graphic (= find titles with product, but NOT with graphic). Searches with OR and NOT lead to null results.
      • Phrase Searching is not available: This OPAC cannot handle Phrase Searching (using double quotes). A search string as "light spaces" (= search for these words as an exact phrase) leads to the same results as light spaces.
      • 'Item type' roll-down menu in the advanced search (7 in the last figure above): Most item types listed here are not relevant for our holdings. The most important ones are: books and magazines (= periodicals, i.e., magazines, academic journals, newspapers).
      • 'Publication year' in the advanced search (see last figure) I: You can type in an exact year of publication, e.g. 2018 (= find titles having been published in 2018) or a year range, e.g. 2015-2018 (= find titles having been published in 2015 OR 2016 OR 2017 OR 2018).
      • 'Publication year' in the advanced search (see last figure) II: On the other hand, the following search terms do not work as they should: -2018 (= find titles having been published in 2018 OR before 2018) results only titles published in 2018; likewise, 2015- (= find titles having been published in 2015 OR after 2015) results only titles published in 2015.
      • Book publications and journal titles only: In this OPAC, you can only search for book publications and journal titles. Book chapters and journal articles are not (yet) catalogued.

      Here you find the last three newsletters informing about new book acquisitions.

        Do you want to recommend a title for acquisition?

        In any case, please give us as much details as possible, especially ISBN / ISSN, author's name, title and year of publication or edition number. The more details you give us, the easier it will be for us to locate and buy the book.
