Finding books and reports

Locating a specific book

If you are looking for a specific book of which you know the author and/or the title, the best way to find it is to look it up in the Library Catalogue. In the catalogue record, you can see which libraries hold the book. The holding data consist of a library acronym, followed by a call number.

Library holdings in a catalogue record

Clicking on the library acronym will show you the full name and address of that library.

If the book is neither available full text on the Internet nor in one of the Wageningen libraries, you can ask the library to borrow it for you through Inter Library Lending. This is not a free service, you will be charged a fee. There is an online request form that you can use for ILL.

Finding books on your topic

You can also use the Library Catalogue to search for books on a specific subject. The Catalogue also includes reports, theses, websites and databases.

The best way to do a subject search is to make use of the thesaurus functions. Click the thesaurus search tips in the Catalogue search tips for instructions.
