In addition the library holds a collection of children and adolescents’ books from the estate of Elisabeth-Brigitte Schindler-Holzapfel. For access to the collection, please consult the library.
The library’s stock is listed in the online-catalogue of IDS Basel/Bern [http://aleph.unibas.ch/menu.html]. Borrowing is open to all holders of an IDS user card and free of charge. The vast majority of media are kept in closed stacks and must be ordered online (exceptions: current issues of journals, a selection of reference books, and new acquisitions in the open access area). Following your online order, the materials will be set aside for you to collect within one week for usage at home or in the reading room.
Books can only be returned during library office hours or else sent by post.
The materials are indexed according to the OWC (geographic) and OCM (subject) classification systems, allowing you a detailed search of the anthropological literature.
