Information is vital for any successful business enterprise and our library's role is to provide accurate, reliable and up-to-date information for our global business users: faculty, students, alumni and staff.

The IBS Library houses all the essential basic literature used in day-to-day coursework. The collection consists of 15,000 copies of books, 3,000 dissertations, and 30 journal titles (hard copy). The Library collection has three sections: a Bachelor, a Master, and an Arts Management collection. Students and teachers can find several copies of each bookmarked as “compulsory“ or “recommended” in the general module descriptions. In addition, hard copies of the most well-known international business journals and magazines are available as well.

Besides the hard copies of books, the Library offers a wide range of links to electronic resources including business web sites and journals. Users can reach the most important online databases (EBSCO, EMERALD, Grove Art, SSRN, ECCH) with thousands of full-text journals, working papers, and case studies. The computer room of the library has 12 PCs.

Every semester the Library staff provide education for students about the use of the Library and its information resources.

The Library supports education based on case studies, therefore it has had a prosperous cooperation with ECCH (European Case Clearing House) for many years.

In addition, the IBS Library contains a fair amount of special literature. The staff provides support for students with their research work, report writing, dissertation writing, etc.  The librarians are able to browse the stock of other libraries and borrow books for readers through the interlibrary loan system.
