At the pay machine you can pay fees, change money and buy a few useful things.
Our library collections are usually openly accessible.
Media that can be borrowed have an odd location mark (E11, E13 etc.), even location marks (e.g. E10, E20) indicate reference holdings. The stocks are sorted on the shelves according to our classification system.
