Lending card staff members

You can activate your UMCG card to work as a library card. Then you can request and borrow publications from all University of Groningen libraries, in the Netherlands or abroad, free of charge.

Lending card students

Students can borrow books by using their student cards. It is not necessary to activate student cards.

How and where do I find books?
You can search for books in the catalogue. You will find books on the third floor of the CMB. More and more books, especially the most recent ones, are availble electronically (see this
overview of e-books ).

Renewing is no longer needed
As long as no other borrower needs a book, its loan will be automatically renewed: for staff up to a maximum of 24 times 4 weeks, for students and others to a maximum of 12 times 4 weeks. When another borrower reserves a book, it will have to be returned by the end of the loan period. In such case, you'll receive a notification by e-mail.

Mandatory textbooks for students
At the circulation desk you can borrow mandatory textbooks one at a time (for use in the library only) by handing in your student card.
