Do you want to browse through that electronic journal again, for which you did have time during office hours, and still like to do so at home, from your lazy chair? Or do you all of a sudden need that specific article as background information for a lecture at a congress or during your training abroad? Or do you wish to search again that database which was mentioned during your lectures? Or perhaps you want to have a look at what can be found on the site of Wageningen UR Library, at your own time? It is all possible with off-campus access through My Library of Wageningen UR Library.

Are you a student or employee of Wageningen UR, then register once with your email address. To do so click the button ‘Log in’ on Wageningen Desktop Library. After having been checked by the library, you can consult all the sources in Wageningen Desktop Library with any PC all over the world. Registered users with a email address may also have themselves alerted to the contents of many scientific journals through My Library.

Others too can create a My Library account and profit from the extra possibilities, such as alerts to new acquisitions in the catalogue and saving a personal list of interesting sources in My Library. Through My Library you may simply extend the loan period of books that you have borrowed from the library.

Ask the library staff about the possibilities or ask the Helpdesk.
