Zuyd Library and the autumn holidays

Referencing with APA
A reference gives any reader the possibility to check where (and in some cases when) information was found: in which book or journal article, dissertation, report, video, on which web page.
You have to use a citation style. The most used style at Zuyd is APA.
- The 'SFU Online APA Citation Guide' is based on the APA Publication Manual, 6th ed. It provides selected citation examples for common types of sources.
There are also APA guides available in Dutch and German:
- De APA-richtlijnen uitgelegd: een praktische handleiding voor bronvermelding in het hoger onderwijs'.
- 'Erläuterung der APA-Richtlinien: Ein praktisches Handbuch für die Quellenangabe im Hochschulwesen'. (new)

New access policy University Library Maastricht from 1 January 2019
To cope with the ever-increasing pressure on the University Library services, the Maastricht University needs to take measures. As from 1 January 2019, the access policy will change.
Free memberships will end on 1 January 2019.
Subsequently access for non-UM users is only possible on appointment and with a visitor card. This 'visitor card' will cost €10,-. There is a limited amount of visitor cards a day available.
More information on the ‘visitor card’ and the options can be found on the library's website, https://library.maastrichtuniversity.nl/services/librarycard-membership/
