I cannot access the library catalog.
Some suggestions:
On some occasions the library catalog is temporarily unavailable. In that case you can use the backup, see the library catalog webpage. In the backup you will not be able to access your patron information.
Sometimes the firewall of a company’s computer network causes this problem. Please try the library catalog from your pc at home.
Can I still use the Nyenrode Library after my graduation?
After your graduation you have the opportunity to buy a yearly membership of the Library. If you would like to visit the Library for just one day, you can buy a visitor’s card at the information desk in the Library.
