For the use of the Departmental Library of Cultural and Social Anthropologyplease note the following:
The primary purpose of the Departmental Library for Cultural and Social Anthropology is to serve everyone who researches, teaches, and studies at the Institute for Cultural and Social Anthropology at the University of Vienna. In addition, the library is open to the public and anyone interested is welcome. The library is divided into an open-access area with lending options and a closed stacks area (magazines, AV media, old and valuable books). Bringing food and beverages (except bottled water) into the reading area is not permitted.
The library is an open-access library with a lending service.The library regulations for the libraries of the University of Vienna apply. All books can be taken off the shelf and borrowed immediately. Direct access to the literature avoids waiting times and allows you to browse the shelves. The books are organized by region and subject. Each book is assigned to its location using a "speaking signature" and can be found on the shelf using the sequential number.
The semester reserve shelf, ranked according to lecturers' names, provides the most important literature for the courses. Weekend borrowing of these works is possible on Fridays from 12pm.
The reading area offers 36 workstations with a total of 4 research PCs. New acquisitions and the latest issues of current magazines are on a seperate shelf. Reference works, encyclopedias, and bibliographies are also located in the reading area.
