Borrowing and renewing

The Library offers various lending services for staff and students of Wageningen University & Research (WUR). Visiting scientists, alumni and visitors can also make use of several Library services.

Borrowing

Students and staff of WUR can borrow books and other materials with their WUR card. They are automatically registered as borrowers.

All others can register at the lending desk in Forum Library. See for more info Access and registration.

Registration for a WUR Library membership and borrowing are free of charge. The loan period is 28 days. Most of the books at WUR Library can be borrowed. Some of the books are only available for reference, e.g. rare books, reference works, and compulsory study books.

Renewing & Fines

You can renew your loans if the book has not been reserved for another user.

You will receive a warning by e-mail when the loan period expires. When the publications are not returned or the loan period is not extended, you will receive an e-mail weekly with an overview of the items that have not been returned and the fines that are still to be paid.

NO RIGHTS CAN BE DERIVED FROM NOT RECEIVING THIS E-MAIL!
