Adapted services: what are the changes?

See our overview of frequently asked questions concerning our adapted services:


Compulsory literature

You will find the compulsory literature among the regular collections in the University Library City Centre.

Are you a lecturer, and would you like the compulsive literature for your course(s) to be available in the University Library? You can submit an acquisition request for compulsory literature. Doing so at least 5 weeks before the start of your course, allows us to process your request in time.

Seminar shelves Arts - Theology

In the seminar shelves you will find publications lecturers have reserved. You will find the seminar shelves on the 2nd floor (turn left in front of the coffee corner). These publications are not lendable and cannot be borrowed; they can only be used within the University Library City Centre, so that everyone can access them. Due to the corona measures, you must reserve a studyplace to be able to consult the seminar shelves. If required, you can use the photocopier on the 4th floor.

Lecturers can reserve publications for tutorials on the seminar shelves (at a maximum of 100 titles per class). Publications may be borrowed; therefore we ask you to request the desired literature at least 5 weeks in advance via the webform.

Please note: becasue of the customized services due to the corona virus, we recommend that you refer to online literature as much as possible and/or submit an acquisition suggestion.

If you have any questions, please contact wcm-bibliotheek .
