Subjects are: development, environment, gender, global economy, global politics, anthropology of media, and material culture.
- E-books, e-journals, databases with images, video, reference and source materials, printed books and a few printed journals.
The collection printed books and journals is partly placed in open stacks at the Social and Behavioural Sciences Library, and partly in closed stacks of the University Library and the Van Steenis Building. All books can be requested by using the Library Catalogue and will be delivered at the location of preference.
The collection in the Library of Social and Behavioural Sciences is arranged by the Library of Congress Classification (LCC). Titles on Anthropology are mostly placed in category GN.
Prescribed course readings are set aside on course reserve shelves behind the desk of the Library. These books cannot be borrowed but are available for reading in the library, for photocopying and scanning.
