Organisation
Localisation
The mathematics book collection is housed at the Luxembourg Learning Centre on the second floor. Fragile, old or valuable material is in storage and needs to be ordered via the “Request” button above the location details of an az.lu entry.
Classification, Signage
The books are sorted on the shelves according to the subject related Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), so that mathematics material would mainly be found within the classification numbers between 510 and 519.
Example for DDC : the call number field in the "Get this at a library"tab might show something like "512.73 Dud". This is the code printed on the book spine to find it on the shelf. The figures represent the main content of the book – in this case :
500 = Natural Sciences
510 = Mathematics
512 = Algebra
512.7 = Number Theory
512.73 = Analytic Number Theory
The three characters behind the figures are the first letters of the author's name or the book title – this helps to further separate the material shelved under the same call number.
Reference Works
You will find below a selection of reference works on mathematics which are available in University library:
Tapson, Frank 
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2013 

Olver, Frank W.J. 
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2009 

Bouvier, Alain 
Paris : Presses univ. de France, 2001 

GrattanGuinness, Ivor

Printed Journal Collection (and other periodical works)
For mathematics most of the relevant journals are not offered in print but as ejournals that are discoverable via az.lu. The printonly versions of journals need to be ordered from storage – for more information on how to do this, see Journals.
Organisation
There is a lot of information online that is not freely accessible. The University of Luxembourg Library has subscribed to many databases, ejournals and ebooks which are accessible by entering your login credentials in az.lu, which are provided after becoming a member of the library.
Ebooks
Ebooks are available via az.lu – if you want to search only ebook titles, choose "Digital library" in the top row of the search box and set the filter “Type of publication” on “Books” (in the menu on the right).
Further directory on international ebooks:
The Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) is an online directory to increase discoverability of Open Access books. The database is included in the az.lu search. 
Ejournals and full text articles
Ejournals are available via az.lu – if you want to search only ejournal titles, choose "Digital library" in the top row of the search box and set the filter “type of publication” on “Journals” (in the menu on the right). Be aware that you only search the titles of the ejournals and not the articles within them. For searching articles in journals, proceedings etc. set the filter on "Articles".
Further directories on international ejournals:
The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is an online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peerreviewed journals. The database is included in the az.lu search. 

The Electronic Journals Library is a service of the University Library of Regensburg to facilitate the use of scholarly journals on the internet and offers a unified interface to access fulltext articles online from all areas of research. Besides the more than 50,000 journals which are accessible free of charge to anyone, participating libraries provide their users access to the journals they subscribe to. 
Catalogues and Other Databases
For searching online databases only, choose "Digital library" in the top row of the search box and set the filter “Type of publication” on “Databases” (in the menu on the right). Remember to log in first with the user ID and password received when you registered at the BUL. By this you are enabled to search (among others) the following, probably most important mathematical research database :
MathSciNet is a comprehensive database of the American Mathematical Society covering the world's mathematical literature of more than 60 years backwards. It provides online access to reviews and bibliographic data from Mathematical Review and Current Mathematical Publications as well as links to original articles and free access to featured reviews. To access the database log in to az.lu first and retrieve the database via az.lu. 
Here is a selection of further mathematics databases:
ZB MATH is the world’s most comprehensive reference database in mathematical research and a navigation tool in mathematical literature with links to the electronic versions of articles and to document delivery systems. 

arXiv.org is an eprintserver offering a quick publication possibility for research results. Thus it is an important open access resource in astronomy, computer science, physics and mathematics. 

The purpose of the EuDML Initiative is to provide a Digital Mathematics Library (DML) for the scientific community as a public service with the aim to help scientists locate the information that is distributed in various digital repositories and discover information related to their work in an optimal way. 

swMATH is a freely accessible information service for mathematical software that provides access to an extensive database of information on mathematical software and includes a systematic linking of software packages with relevant mathematical publications. 

The MathDiss database is an Internetbased access to international mathematical dissertations. 

The EULER database provides a gateway to the electronic catalogues and repositories of participating institutions by indexing and storing metadata records of its participants. 

The database offers digitized mathematics journals and monographs. 

Vifamath is a virtual library of mathematics and allows to search both for conventional forms of media and for electronic resources. 

The European Mathematical Information Service (EMIS) was founded in 1995 as the central portal for electronic math resources in Europe. Since then, with the support of the European Mathematical Society and many publishers, FIZ Karlsruhe has developed the largest open access electronic library in mathematics ELibM (see link below) as the core of EMIS, as well as other resources. 

The Electronic Library of Mathematics contains online journals, article collections, monographs, and other electronic resources generally freely accessible, except for some periodicals with a “moving wall”, i.e., a certain delay period after which resources become freely available. 
Online Reference Books, Dictionaries and Encyclopaedias
The following works on mathematics are available online:
Print and online version available. For the latter: subscription needed – after log in to az.lu the ebook is accessible. 

Historical Encyclopedia of Natural and Mathematical Sciences 
Subscription needed – after log in to az.lu the ebook is accessible. 
An open access wiki based on the original articles from the online Encyclopaedia of Mathematics, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 2002. Springer and the European Mathematical Society have made the content of this Encyclopedia freely open to the public to enable the wiki to become again the most comprehensive and uptodate online mathematics reference work. 

MathWorld is an online mathematics reference work, based on "Eric's Treasure Trove of Mathematics" written by Eric W. Weisstein.
