WUR Library Search, the new search tool

You can use the new search tool 'WUR Library Search' at the Library’s homepage. It replaces Global Search and the Library catalogue. You can search in article databases, the collections of other libraries in the Netherlands or worldwide in one search.

WUR Library Search covers multiple databases in one search, including the Library catalogue and Staff Publications. You can also search in article databases, the collections of other libraries in the Netherlands or libraries worldwide. Searching in other library's collections helps to get an impression of all the literature on a topic within Worldcat Discovery, which is the software behind WUR Library Search. If you find a publication that you need for your research but it's not held by WUR Library, you can send a loan or purchase request to the Library.
