The University Library for lecturers

The University Library offers a range of services for lecturers, to assist them with information skills, data support, advice concerning copyright, Easy Access Regulation, Open Educational Resources and Online Library Guides.

The University Library also offers physical or online exhibitions, heritage laid out in front of the class, and 3D-printing.

University Library for lecturers

  • Guest lectures and workshops on information skills

    Our subject librarians can provide workshops or classes on how to search for literature or data as a part of your course. 

  • Data support for teachers

    If you teach a course that frequently requires students to work with data, our data specialists can:
    - organise a workshop or class to incorporate into your course;
    - help you find suitable data for exercises or examples.
    Contact to discuss the options.

  • Copyright and the Easy Access Regulation 

    We offer advice on Copyright, the Easy Access Regulation and using teaching materials in Canvas in our libguide (in Dutch). Do you have any questions or need advice? Send an email to

  • Online Library Guides and free workshops

    We offer staff and students:
    - online LibGuides about finding literature tailored to your specific field & finding data;
    - free workshops about finding literature or data and about referencing with Endnote. 

  • Heritage laid out in front of the class

    Interested in using early printed or handwritten works or academic heritage during your class? Please contact our curators to learn about the possibilities.

  • Curating physical or online exhibitions 

    The Library manages much of the academic and cultural heritage of the VU. Highlights such as paintings, manuscripts, and church books can be viewed via web exhibitions.

    The web exhibitions are not only intended to draw attention to the VU heritage, they are also employed for education. The Library invites teachers to act as guest curators. Let your students compile a web exhibition instead of writing a paper. In this way they can show their knowledge in an original way.

  • 3D printing

    Would you like to 3D print an object to improve students’ understanding of your teaching? If so, please contact Sylvia Moes, e-mail
