Learning and resource centre collections

Books

The collection of books in the Learning and Resource Centre is based on the university’s various curricula. You can find this collection in LibSearch  , which you can access via this website. This collection has its own location codes:

  • Inner City Library codes start with:
    • SW (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences)
    • SF (School of Business and Economics)
    • SJ (Faculty of Law)
  • Randwyck Library codes start with SL
  • In the Campus Venlo Learning and Resource Centre codes start with SV or SZ

Faculty tutors compile the collection for the Learning and Resource Centre. The tutors decide which titles should be available for each course. Each year the tutors screen the titles on relevance and currency. As a UM student you can make suggestions for new orders to your tutor.

Basically, several titles are available per subject, and several editions per title. These books are not for loan; they  should be available in the learning and resource centre at all times.

Audio-visual media

Along with books, the Learning and Resource Centre is also home to a range of audio-visual media. You can find these in LibSearch  .

Like the books in the Learning and Resource Centre, the audio-visual media are not for loan. But there is one exception to this rule: if a DVD is needed for a lecture, course introduction or another educational activity within the university, staff members can ask to borrow it at the information desk.

In the Inner City Library and the Randwyck Library, you can play audio-visual media on any PC by following these steps: Start – All Programs – VideoLAN - VLC media player. 

Microfiches

To view and print old government and other publications, you can use the microfiche reader/printer in the Inner City Library (on level 1, zone C).

Anatomy models

The second floor of the Randwyck Library houses a collection of anatomy models. 

Digital learning resources

The library offers an increasing number of  digital learning resources, such as course books, literature folders, e-readers and theses. You can find these media using the Online Library. Students have access to these resources via the Student Portal.

In the Online Library  , the library website, you can find e-books, e-journals, databases and UM publications.

Multimedia

You need to use the PCs in the libraries to play multimedia files (e.g. sound and image files) from the internet, you can also work with and save these files to use in your own work (essays, theses, portfolios or other assignments).
