Requesting material from other libraries

THUAS Library offers students and staff members a service known as interlibrary loans: if books or journal articles are not available in its own collection, they can be requested from another library through the Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service. Requests should be submitted using the ILL Request Form ***Due to the summer holidays, ILL requests will not be processed from July 12th 2021 till August 15th 2021*** with one form being used for each request. You will then receive an email confirming your request.

Before you submit an ILL-request, you can check in Google Scholar if we already have access to the full text article via one of our databases. If you use Google Scholar off-campus (e.g. at home), you must first add De Haagse Hogeschool in the library link-setting. You can do that as follows:

Google Scholar drop-down menu top left -> Settings -> Library links -> checkmark at De Haagse Hogeschool - Find it @ H / Library -> Save (see also the link below)

Setting up Find it @ H/Library in Google Scholar and search examples

If you use computers on campus, the link to De Haagse Hogeschool is already set.
