Library consultation hour: now digital!

Due to the Corona virus, the Hanze Library will also be closed in the near future, so you cannot just walk in. And that while you may have extra questions right now!
The information specialists have therefore organized an online consultation hour.

Every weekday between 11:30 and 12:30 you can ask us your questions through​ this link in Blackboard Collaborate. (Open this link in Google Chrome.)


Do you have questions about literature research? We would be happy to speak to you during the online consultation hour!
