  • consult online sources and search engines
  • use all print facilities of Utrecht University
  • use the Eduroam Wi-Fi network (if you do not already have access to Eduroam via your own educational institution)

Open access resources

When you are not in the library, you have access to open access databases and journals. In the list they are indicated by a green arrow. No green arrow? You only have access to these databases and journals when you are in the library.
