The library of Van Hall Larenstein is located at two campuses: Leeuwarden and Velp.

The library aims to:


provide a modern, inspiring, inviting, safe and pleasant learning environment, where information that is up-to-date and related to education can be found in every form (digital and physical);


make students and employees more skilled and critical while looking for, processing and sharing information;


support employees in education, innovations in education and research with our specific expert knowledge.

The libraries are high-quality departments within Van Hall Larenstein. They are intensively used as places where users can meet, study, lounge and hold a meeting. The media collection is used very frequently and is suited to the needs of the various study programmes at each campus location. The libraries have long opening hours. Over the past few years, they have been fully renovated and adapted to the needs of students and employees.

Greeni - library for the green uas is the joint website of the libraries of Aeres University of Applied Sciences, HAS University of Applied Sciences and Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences. Greeni provides not only a catalogue with menu options such as renewing and making reservations, but also internet sources, databases and electronic journals that were selected especially for you. You can also find lots of information about information skills (searching, finding and using information), copyrights and more.

At the Van Hall Larenstein Studentnet library pages, students and staff of both locations will find all the information about the services of the library in one place. The library pages also deal with searching and finding good and reliable information and what you can and may do with that information.
