How does it work?

  • The browser extension will show a pop-up message when you are on a publishers’ website with licensed material.
  • You then can click on the access button and login with your WUR account.
  • The extension will search for alternative, legal ways to get the full text, including Open Access, if the Library doesn't have a subscription.
  • Library Access works in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. It cannot be installed on mobiles or tablets.

2. Library Website

Click on the orange Log in button at the top of the Library homepage, and log in with your WUR account. Continue your search in WUR Library Search via the search box or in specific databases to get access to articles and e-books. You don't need special software or specific settings.
