Both residents of Wageningen Campus as well as visitors (to some degree) can use the support facilities, ranging from the language centre to the meeting halls.
WUR Library is located in Forum (building 102) on Wageningen campus. There is also a smaller library branch in Leeuwenborch (building 201). No student or employee of WUR? Even then you are more than welcome to use the services of the Library. Below you’ll find an overview of the possibilities.
Consulting the digital collection
Through WUR Library Search, you can quickly see which sources are available online and which are available in the Library. In Forum and Leeuwenborch Library there are some computers available for guests. On these guest computers you have complete access to the digital collection. As a visitor you can also connect to the Wifi network of WUR. The day code is available at the information desk in the Library. In order to print or copy a book or journal article available in hardcopy, you need a WURcard or pre-paid print card. The pre-paid cards are available in Forum.
Reading printed publications
A small segment of the library collection is available on the open shelves in the Forum and Leeuwenborch Libraries. In Forum Library you’ll find books and journals focused on life, environmental and natural sciences. The Leeuwenborch Library’s collection is mainly focused on the social sciences and economics.
The largest part of the collection is stored in the closed stacks. In order to view a certain book, report or journal, you can make a request at the information desk. The requested item will be ready for pick up within the hour.
Do you also want to borrow a book besides just reading it in the Library? Then you’ll need a guest account, which you can create online. See this webpage for more information. With a guest account you can borrow books for free, renew your loans and request items from the closed stacks.
The Special Collections department holds rare and old books and journals, maps and atlases, nursery catalogues and garden and landscape designs. More information on the Special Collection’s website.
Finally, the library can provide a number of customised services. These could include training in the field of information literacy, Endnote and/or Mendeley and creating fact sheets, files or databases on specific topics. On WUR Library’s homepage you can find more information about the library’s services. For more information or for a tour, you can also contact us personally.
We hope to see you at WUR Library!
