Currently only available in German.
The books in the reading rooms are shelved systematically, i.e. according to subjects and within the subjects, according to subject areas and topics. The basis of the arrangement is the classification system which divides the fields of knowledge into main groups and subgroups and is expressed by a letter-number combination (classification number). Classification numbers are used for the books’ shelf numbers, and you can use them to search the catalogue thematically.

To search for literature, especially journal articles on a specific topic, you usually use interdisciplinary or specialized databases. Psychology subject databases can be found in ULB’s Database Information System (DBIS).
