General library collection
The Library has an extensive collection of (online) books and journals on every subject that is taught at the Erasmus University.
The starting point for the procurement policy is the scientific relevance for the institution itself, depending on the research activities and educational programs within the faculties. In addition, national coordination between university and other libraries plays a role.
