About the Library

SCHEDULE: Monday through Friday, 9:30am to 6pm

Dear Students and Researchers,

Access to the Norte/Sul Library is through CES main entrance, 2nd door to the left of the parking lot.

The Direção CES recommends the use of masks in common spaces, particularly when:

- Common use spaces ( Library, bar and cafeteria) are close to their maximum capacity;

- ventilation of the spaces is not adequate or possible;

- The CES Direção appeals to the individual responsibility, to keep the mask whenever people have symptoms of any viral infection or know they have been in contact with possible transmitters, and also whenever they are in the presence of immunocompromised people.

Best wishes for your academic work!

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding

The Norte/Sul Library (BN/S) aims to develop a coherent, credible and comprehensive bibliographic collection (books and periodicals; print and online formats), specially but not exclusively, centered in the scientific production carried out in the areas of Social Sciences and Humanities, in the global South. It also includes the scientific production carried out in the Northern countries on issues related to research pertaining to the countries of the South.

Created in 1998, the BN/S is currently experiencing a period of growth in its collections, which encompasses a wide range of subjects. The current BN/S collections comprise more than 29,000 volumes (monographs, theses, dissertations, research reports, and gray literature), including a collection of around 2,600 volumes donated by the April 25th Documentation Center, and more than 400 periodical titles (from various countries around the world) in Social Sciences and Humanities.
