Library facilities

Wageningen University & Research - Library is a state of the art library in which visitors can find all the study facilities they need. The Library has various work stations, and offers a wide range of printing, copying and scanning options.

A large collection of handbooks, dictionaries, bibliographies and other resources help you with your studies and research, as do the Library staff and their expertise.

The Forum Library is closed until September 10th. Please find more information about our services during the Summer at Library Makeover.


A wireless guest network  is available. The Library staff can help you set up an account. Network connecting points are available for laptops. You can borrow a network cable at the Lending Desk in the Forum Library.

WUR staff and students can log onto one of the pc's in the library, using their personal WUR account.

For the general public, Windows Based Terminals are available for internet use and review purposes. These terminals do not have the same facilities the pc’s do. They are only suited for using our digital library and other internet resources. Moreover, printing is not possible.


Multifunctional copiers are available for scanning, printing and copying. These multifunctionals use the 'eWallet', a payment system that has been integrated into the WUR card, which all students and employees have.

  • Students can add credit on their eWallet to print, to scan or to copy.
  • Employees can use the multifunctionals free of charge when using their WUR card.
  • Visitors who want to copy or print in the library can purchase a pre-paid eWallet in the atrium of the Forum. The card costs € 8.50 and comes with € 7.50 credit. It is possible to add credit to this card.

Do you only want to make a few copies, and you don't have a WUR card? Then you can borrow a pre-paid eWallet from the Forum Library’s front desk. You’ll be charged for the copies when you return the card. You can pay by debit card. Unfortunately, visitors without WUR card cannot scan at the library.
