It is possible to borrow books from the Institute’s library (including G-signatures!) over the Christmas break. Borrowing is possible from this Friday 12h onwards. Books must be returned by Mon, 6th of January (till 12h at the latest).
So, why don’t you invite Malinowski, Geertz, and all the others over for a nice cup of Glühwein and some ginger bread at your place?
