IMARES library collection integrated

The IMARES’ IJmuiden location (formerly RIVO) will soon be renovated. The renovations, however, do not include a library not only because the new location lacks space, but also because researchers can find almost all of their literature in digital form.Thus, the considerable collection of many unique books and journals in the field of aquaculture and fisheries will be integrated into the Wageningen UR Library. The collection will be moved to Wageningen around 1 July.

IMARES employees work for Wageningen UR and therefore have access to the Wageningen UR Digital Library with online journals, bibliographies and the catalogue. Library employee Suze Koudenburg is retiring on 1 July. The library's Cecile Huber is receiving another workplace within IMARES IJmuiden. She will continue to enter IMARES publications in WaY (Wageningen Yield).

Wageningen UR's IMARES (Institute for Marine Resources & Ecosystem Studies) is the institute in the Netherlands for strategic and applied scientific research on marine ecosystems, specifically sustainable management, and use and exploitation of coastal zones. IMARES has locations in IJmuiden, Yerseke, Texel and Den Helder.
