Linguistics Books and reference literature


Our Dewey-collection is in the open area. Find the literature that you want by using one of our Bibsys-terminals, and pick the books directly from the shelves. Some collections are still in closed storage, and must be ordered before collection. Please ask a librarian, or order on-line. The reference-collection is only for use within the library.

As an aid in searching for specific themes, we are using the HUMORD-system. This is a thesaurus for the humanities. Search for current HUMORDs here. (norwegian only)
