In the old physics book collection (see
Information and online tour of the library),
you will find old books and some old holdings incorporated from
department libraries. They are arranged by several different older
systems. A code like "Fc" plus a number is generally incorporated
on the cover of the book. Three letters, "FYS", are added when
the book comes from the institute of Physics.
All books are recorded in the BIBSYS database and
