... you can read newspapers in the library?
You can't burn the candle at both ends, and because of this, the visitor can find a spacious newspaper and magazine corner with trendy little tables, armchairs and lamps on the Forum Library's second floor. The view is magnificent. The racks are filled with a wide choice of national and international newspapers, Dutch university papers and magazines in the field of management, for example. The reading corner clearly fills a need considering the number of visitors. The Leeuwenborch Library also has a wide assortment of newspapers.

…you can consult digital newspapers in the database Lexis Nexis via the Wageningen Digital Library?
Using the Digital Library, you can consult the database Lexis Nexis Academic NL. Lexis Nexis is filled with news and business articles from a large number of national and regional newspapers (e.g., the Volkskrant and the Leeuwarder Courant), financial daily newspapers (e.g., Financieel Dagblad), news magazines (e.g., Vrij Nederland) and professional journals (e.g., Intermediar). This digital information is free to students and employees of Wageningen UR. All Dutch sources or a limited number of sources can be 'easily' searched in Lexis Nexis using (two) terms or starting from a certain period. The search possibilities are extended in 'advanced search' where a maximum of four terms and specific choices in the document (title, author, section and opening) can be searched for. Searches may also be done using 'Boolean search'.

…new titles are regularly added to Lexis Nexis?
Almost every month new sources are added to the database, such as Spits (since 1 July 2007), het Friesch Dagblad (since October 2007) and de Pers (since mid-January 2008). For more information about new sources, click on new sources in Lexis Nexis.
