Your VIA Library is OPEN and you can borrow, reserve and pick up the books and journals you need for your educational purposes. However, the library is not open as a study place. See the local opening hours here.
Your librarian is ready to help you. All our help and guidance has been moved online, so send us an email or call us for help or to book an appointment. Find your librarian here or contact your local library here.
The Book Is Not Dead
Over the last centuries, many have declared the book dead and predicted that it is only a matter of time before everyone reads literature on a screen, iPad, e-reader, smartphone etc. However, the COVID lockdown has shown us that the printed sources still represent a significant part of the knowledge foundation of the VIA programs. The consequences of the VIA Library lockdown have thus greatly impacted many students and their chances of accessing information and literature.
You can always get help and supervision on literature searches, reference management, source criticism and much more at your VIA Library.
