The infoclip below shows you how Library Access works
HMSM Library open again during the evening hours

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/
Zuyd's licence for EndNote due to expire
Zuyd's licence for EndNote expires on 31 December 2018 and will not be renewed. That means that you will need to switch to different software before then, for instance EndNote Basic, which is available free of charge within Zuyd through Web of Science.
EndNote Basic is an online version of EndNote (in the cloud). See the manual on how to create an account. Please note that from December 24 there is no support for this due to the holiday. So step over before the Christmas holidays.
Zuyd Library's new website
As from September 17, the Zuyd Library website has been given a new look. In terms of content, much has remained the same. With the DiZ search bar you can still search directly for Zuyd information sources. Also the website remains the portal to the LibGuides per subject area.
No more e-sources database
The previous e-sources database will not come back on the library site. This tool has been replaced by a concise Databases A-Z overview. This A-Z list gives direct access to all databases selected by Zuyd Library.
HBO Knowledge Base renewed
The HBO Kennisbank (HBO Knowledge Base) has been renewed! More than 10 years after the launch it was time for a renewal. In addition to a new design to increase the accessibility of research publications, the affiliated hogescholen want to put even more emphasis on open access publishing. And thus inspire people and stimulate the reuse of research. Zuyd Library is in line with this development with the Open Access Publishing retro project.
