Welcome to the library!

The library is for all students at GIH. Many find it to be a great place to study. Towards the back, there are study spaces for those who prefer to study in peace and quiet, while closer to the entrance, you can have quiet conversations.

In the library, you'll find course literature available for borrowing or reading on-site. There are also a printer and copier, student computers, and more.

The library is normaly staffed for four hours every Monday to Friday. In the summer, the library is closed from June 21. More about the library's opening hours.

Feel free to ask us about course literature, referencing, how to find good articles, or anything else. Outside of staffed hours, it's self-service in the library, and you're welcome to use the study spaces and computers.

Welcome inside!
