On this page, we have compiled some of the most important things you should know about CBS Library.

Throughout the library and the reading rooms, you'll see big Post-it notes. They offer a little insight into what you can do at that exact location. On the library's Instagram and Facebook profile, you can find posts related to the hashtags on the Post-it notes. 
We offer much more and you can explore the services on my.cbs.dk, on this homepage, and in the physical library.

Getting a library card and PIN

Students at CBS are automatically registered in the library system and can log in using CBS username and password. To check out items from the self-service terminals, however, you need a PIN. To create a PIN, simply login to Libsearch and go to "Personal Details" and "Update Login Credentials".

Curriculum - reading lists

The Course Collection on the ground floor of the Solbjerg Plads library contains one copy of all the books listed on the various programme curricula. The books are not loanable but can be used anywhere in the library. A lot of the curricular materials are web-based and can be downloaded and read on your computer. You can find the lists on CBS Canvas and www.academicbooks.dk
When you know what you need - look it up in Libsearch

Online use from your home

The vast majority of CBS Library resources are web-based and can be accessed through a variety of interesting databases. You can gain access to most of these databases from home using your CBS login.
The databases cover many subjects and you'll find dictionaries and encyclopedias, databases containing financial accounts and market reports, statistics, law and much more.
