Selecting and ordering literature
You’re welcome to submit literature requests and acquisition suggestions to the responsible subject librarian, either informally via email or by using our acquisition proposal form.
We can set up quick reference collections for literature required on a daily basis as required by Chairs after consultation with their respective subject librarian. Up to 500 items of research literature can be included in a quick reference collection. Please contact your responsible subject librarian to set up a quick reference collection or order books for a collection.
Various bibliometric indicators can be used to evaluate, compare or rank the significance of scientific publications. Please contact us for more information on the h-index or impact factor. The subject librarians can gladly advise on individual bibliometric aspects.
Digital and information literacy
The ULB supports the advancement of digital literacy and information skills with subject-specific in-person teaching and digital offers. We can gladly attend your events and give an introduction to subject-specific information research.
