End of Simultaneous search - introduction of new tools

For the past nine years, Simultaneous search has functioned as a tool to help users quickly find relevant information in the large and varied range of digital content of the THUAS library. By displaying the number of search results per source, the user quickly gets an indication of the possible importance of the source. And by searching multiple sources simultaneously, a lot of time is saved. However, it was not an ideal solution and the increasing number of digital sources offered by the library led to more malfunctions, reducing the reliability of the system. Therefore, Simultaneous search is no longer available from July 1st. Instead, we offer the improved databases overview, E-Publication Finder and three tools: Lean Library, LibKey Nomad and EndNote Click. See the Full text tools page for more information.


Boomportaal was recently renewed. However, some of the content is not yet available in the current version, but is available via the previous version of Boomportaal.


URL changes

The access URLs for some databases were recently changed: CROW Kennisbank, ESB, LexisNexis Nederlandse Bedrijven, Nexis Uni, O'Reilly Safari, SportBusiness University, Thesaurus Zorg en Welzijn and XpertHR.
