Borrowing from another library
If a book or periodical article is not in the collection of the EUR University Library you can order this from another library through the ILL (inter-library loan) service. This can be done in two ways:
- With a form (if it is a one-time request or if you only sporadically request publications);
- With an ILL account in PiCarta (if you regularly request publications).
To request a publication you need a EUR student card or valid library card. You will be notified when your book is ready to collect. A periodical article is usually sent by e-mail as a scanned copy. Delivery usually takes just over a week.
Charges and payment
The charges for EUR staff and students are different than those for other users. If you have requested a publication with a form you must pay the charge on collecting the book at the circulation desk. For EUR staff and students an order number will suffice. If you have requested a publication with an ILL account the costs will be automatically deducted from your account.
The ILL count is an account with an access number and pin code with which you can request books and periodicals in PiCarta. More information.
Requesting books from abroad
A publication that is not available in a Dutch library can be ordered from abroad by the University Library. You should allow several weeks for delivery. Books ordered from abroad cannot be borrowed, but you can use them at the University Library.
