Library Loans and Returns

25 May 2020 09:11 | HvA Library

Our library locations are still closed, but we found a way to lend books to AUAS students and personnel. Use the special request form and pick up your book on an agreed time and place. Please note not all books can be requested.

How can you request a book?

Open the AUAS catalogue and see if the item you want is available for loan. Fill out the request form  and choose a pick-up location. If you need more than one book, use multiple request forms. The pick-up locations  you can select are at  the reception of these AUAS locations:  the Leeuwenburg, Nicolaes Tulphuis and Wibauthuis.

We will retrieve the books for you and add it to your library account. When this is done, you will receive an email telling you when and where to pick up your requested item.

At the receptions of named buildings you will also find drop boxes you can use to return items you have borrowed.

Important information:

  • This service is only available to AUAS students and personnel
  • You can only request items from the AUAS collection (not UvA), excluding items that are available as an ebook or from the Fraijlemaborg collection*
  • It will take at least 72 hours before you can pick up your requested items
  • You can only pick up the items by appointment, as stated in the email you will receive when you request is processed

*Due renovations at the Fraijlemaborg building these books are not accessible to us. However, books from other locations that are currently closed for the public can be requested without any problems.
