Tip: The Library is Available to You Everywhere!

Published on

Do you want to flip through that one electronic journal one more time that you quickly looked through at work? Or do you need an article for background information for your lecture at a congress or during your practical training abroad? Or do you want to look through the database that was mentioned during lecture? Or maybe you want to look quickly on the Wageningen UR Library's site? Or quickly renew the loan period of a book that you received an email reminder about? You can do all of this with off-campus access through Wageningen UR Library's 'My Library'.

As a student or employee of Wageningen UR, you only have to register once for this service using your email address. Go to 'My Library' in the Wageningen UR Digital Library and click on 'Register as a new user'. As a registered user, you can consult all the sources in the Digital Library anywhere in the world. You can also receive an online table of contents from several scientific journals or you can make search profiles about certain subjects and receive weekly or monthly reports about them (alerts) . You can also personalize the library page by selecting only the sources that are interesting for you, for example. Or you can easily extend the loan period for books and also get an overview of the books you've borrowed and reserved.

Even non-Wageningen UR employees and students can create a My Library account with their email address and profit from some of these possibilities such as alerts about new acquisitions in the catalogue and maintain a personal list of interesting sources in My Library.

Ask about the possibilities at the Servicedesk Library.
