You are allowed to copy this material on the printer outside Forum Library.

You can return books in the green book box at the Pick Up & Go Desk. You may also return books by regular mail, please send to: WUR Library, P.O. Box 9100, 6700HA, Wageningen. Books that have been returned are first held in quarantine for four days before they are made available for the next borrower.

InterLibrary Loan

Many libraries in the Netherlands as well as world-wide have been closed temporarily. To our regret it is no longer possible to borrow books from other libraries. You can still request articles and book chapters from other libraries. Please keep in mind that processing your request may take longer than usual and some items may be unavailable.

Printers and computers

Currently the Forum Library has no printers or (guest) computers. We are open between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon exclusively to give borrowers the possibility to pick up & return books. You are allowed to make copies on the printer outside Forum Library of material that cannot be borrowed.

Online services

The Library's digital collection is of course available and our services are continuing online as much as possible.
