Services for visitors

Not a student or employee of the EUR? You are still more than welcome to utilize the services in the University Library. Below you will find an overview of the possibilities.

A small segment of the library collection is available for consultation in the library. The largest part is stored in an enclosed area. In order to view a certain book, report or journal, you must request it a day in advance before 4.00 p.m. using our application form. Please include the details of the publication, such as the title, author, year of publication and request number if available. You will find this in sEURch.

You can collect the publication the next day at the information desk (you will be notified by email when your book is available for collection). Note: you can only view the book in the University Library. Copying is not possible.

Do you also want to borrow a book besides just viewing it? In this case you need a library card. To collect your library card, please show your ID to the information desk in the University Library. Payment is possible with your debit card.
