Are you looking at the right place on the shelf? If the book has an
author, it is sorted by the author’s name – otherwise by the first

If you still cannot find the book, please ask the staff available 11 am

Please note that the books placed in the closed stacks (Magasin) or
off-site depositories (Depå) must always be requested in advance.
