Using the library services in times of corona

2 April 2020

With the decision to proceed with remote/online teaching at Leiden University until the end of the academic year all of us are facing a great challenge. The University Library is doing its utmost to facilitate this transition, especially in regards to the greater need for digital resources. I’d like to update you about the current situation and the services we can (and, to be transparant, can’t) provide to staff and students during these difficult times.
Reading Rooms/Study Area materials are loanable
Library and publishers are working hard to expand access to digital resources
Purchase requests (for class use) can be addressed to me
Students in need of Special Collections access can also contact me (options are limited here, I am afraid!)
All relevant information (and updates) about library services can be found here:
