Help buying books for research

Doctoral students and researchers at Lund University are welcome to buy books for their research through the Library of Science. We will need the book’s title, author, and if possible its ISBN (International Standard Book Number). Your department pays for the book, so you will also need to provide us with your cost centre (kostnadsställe).
