The Burch University Library (library ibu.edu.ba) catalog has a total of 23,750 library units and 2,613 journals. According to the possibilities, the library fund is constantly being enriched with new editions in coordination with professors and students, we also equipped the library with the necessary computer equipment so that the records and archives are kept in electronic form in accordance with library standards.
The library space consists of two parts - library and reading room. The reading room contains computers used by students and professors for business and personal needs. On all computers, students and academic staff can access both the catalog and the databases (EBSCO, ELSEVIER, SCIENCE DIRECT, IXXX XPLORE).
