Books university library for visitors

Are you looking for academic publications such as books, theses and seminar reports? Use the following databases:

  • Catalog (WorldCat Discovery): contains a description of all the books in the Tilburg Unviersity library collection, plus their location code. The Tilburg University catalog also contains information and links to e-books, (digital books) in the collection. It also contains references to publications available outside of Tilburg

  • Netherlands Central Catalogue (NCC): contains the holdings and details of several hundred Dutch libraries, such as other university libraries and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (The National library of the Netherlands).

    Books in the Netherlands Central Catalog are integrated in WorldCat Local. The advantage of using the Netherlands Central Catalog is that the interlibrary loan function works better than in WorldCat Local.
