Here you can find literature on social science subjects, in particular political science and sociology. Collections focus on social structure research, the labour and trade union movement, new social movements, developing countries (in particular Latin America), women/gender studies, European studies and social psychology. The collections are shelved by classification; most items are freely accessible and can be borrowed. The remaining collections are kept in closed stacks. Orders for items can be placed via the TIB Portal.
