Library and reservable work stations
The library is a part of MF’s Learning centre, where, in addition to library services, you’ll find IT-services and courses. In the library you will find both a quiet study/reading area, computer terminals and work spaces where groups can cooperate.
In the quiet study/reading area, a number of work stations are reserved for master's students. These are distributed at the beginning of each semester by the Student Council. More information about this is normally given on Canvas.
