Literature Search according to Regional and Thematic Viewpoints
We include formal descriptions of all our media while, at the same time, making the content accessible. This happens with the help of a classification system which describes factual and thematic content according to regional and objective criteria. The classification according to region is carried out on the basis of geographical circumstances in 1937, while the content is classified according to subject groups, to which various subcategories are, in each case, assigned.
Search with the aid of systematic classification
After selecting a region, you can find titles relating to particular subject areas, either by means of a word or phrase from the index or by choosing a subject group or subcategory on the system. In both cases, the search will lead you to the library’s electronic catalogue. Should you have any queries or are unable to find titles relating to Eastern Central Europe in our OPAC, we would love to hear from you.
If you are searching literature relating to specific people or places we recommend a direct search via the library’s personal or geographical registers.
