The CAPAS library is a small, highly specialised decentralised reference library. The library is located in the main CAPAS building. If you are interested in scanning any of our books with our high-resolution book scanner, please make an appointment via email, within the designated time (Mondays 12:00 – 14:00), with the contact person. In certain circumstances it is possible to arrange an alternative appointment time.

As a final note: please bring your student ID or service card as well as a USB stick for your scans. A check-out of the books themselves is not possible.
