Borrowing

Besides the digital collections, a large print collection is available at the Forum and Leeuwenborch Libraries. Learn how to request and borrow books and other Library materials.

Loan rules

Your WURcard is also your Library card. You can borrow up to 25 books, free of charge. The loan period is 28 days. From the start of this academic year, borrowed books will be automatically renewed after 28 days. We will automatically renew the loan period up to ten times unless the book has been reserved. If renewal is not possible, you'll get an email with a request to return your library book within seven days.

Most of the books at WUR Library can be borrowed. Some of the books, journals and compulsory study books are only available for reference. You can read these in the Library, but you cannot borrow them. Use WUR Library Search to search for and request the books you want to read.
