You did it! Semester Break! :-)

Congratulations to you all for finishing the semester.







Enjoy your free time, some of us (including me) will do this as well.

The rest of the team will be here in Bad Honnef from
Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.

Our blog will also take a semester break. :-)

Hope to see you again on September, 7th 2015.

Take care.

Sunny regards from the library,

your LIS team.

Is there a room available?

Many of you’ve asked in the past days for a room reservation.

Usually, if the regular classes are over and the examination period begins, all the class rooms in the 4th floor are open and can be used without a reservation.

Furthermore, in the library still are working spaces available if needed. :-)

Your LIS team.

Did you know?

DVDs and CDs in the library

In front of the information desk you can find audio CDs which belong to the journals ECOS and Adesso and also movies in foreign languages.

In addition there are many DVDs with historical topics of the telecast SPIEGEL TV. Those interesting topics should help you with learning the German language!







If you’re interesting in starting your business, there is f.e. also the DVD “The Cafe Bar” the right DVD for you.

Have a great day,

your LIS team.

End of semester

We know that you’ve been very busy (and also very successful) the past days and still will be until the end of next week.

Please keep in mind that you might have borrowed books or journals in the library. In the past some of you missed to return their books due to your very big enthusiasm about finishing your exams. ;-)

So please make sure that you’ve returned all of your book before you go on holidays!

Starting with July, 24th 2015, our opening hours are changing during the semester break.

Your library will be opened from:

Monday to Friday:9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.

Saturdays & Sundays are closed

We’ll get back to the regular opening hours at September, 7th 2015.

We still wish you good luck for your examinations! :-)

Your LIS team.

To whom it may concern…

Dear all,

we’ve noticed that some of you forgot to close the windows in class rooms on the 3rd and 4th floor. I kindly remind you to close the windows and the doors when you leave the rooms.

Furthermore, of course, most of you know it, but some of you might not:

the library is open from Monday to Sunday during the exam week, so you have enough time for your preparation:

Monday to Friday: 9.00 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Saturday, Sunday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Good luck with the examination!! :-)

Your LIS team.

Did you know?

Beside our many service offers, you can also buy Office Supplies at our information desk.

What kind of Office Supplies?

All the things you’ve asked for in the past:

  • Transparent Envelope
  • File Strip
  • Plastic Booklet
  • Envelope A4 + A5

And, furthermore, we offer Thermal Binding for your papers. Please include enough time in your planning because it takes about 15 minutes until the binding is finished.

The price list is hanging at the pillar at the LIS information desk.

Have a very nice weekend,

your LIS team.

STW Thesaurus for Economics

Those of you who visited one of our Dissertation Session or Library Introduction or read this blog already know it:

for your search it is important to think about different search terms because your ambition is (should be!) to find everything relevant for your topic.

A quick example: “electronic commerce” is synonym to “e-commerce“. But if you only look for e-commerce, there may articles not be found which use the term “electronic commerce” instead of e-commerce.

A Thesaurus can help with finding synonyms.

STW Thesaurus of Economics, just test it. ;-)

Have a nice day,

your LIS team.
