TU Delft library

The central TU Delft Library is a hub of technical and scientific information in the Netherlands. It is also a magnificent piece of architecture. The collection comprises books, periodicals, conference proceedings, reports, standards and reference works. Some university faculties also have their own libraries with collections aimed at their own research. Books which are not in stock can be obtained on loan from other university libraries.

The library catalogue can be accessed digitally via library.tudelft.nl. It is also possible to request books and other media from the collection. ‘Ask your library’ (https://askyourlibrary.tudelft.nl) is the virtual reference service of the TU Delft Library. The staff will be happy to help you by e-mail, chat or phone. Study rooms are available for staff and students, many equipped with PCs and internet. You can reserve a study room at the reception desk with your student ID or university card. There are also 1,000 study places, some equipped with PCs, for which no reservation is needed.

Library membership

Everyone is welcome to use the facilities that are open to the public, such as information searches, reference works and periodicals.

You can apply for this personal pass at the Central Library’s Information Desk or at one of the Faculty libraries. All students, staff and guests are automatically a member of TU Delft Library. Books can be borrowed with your campus card. Other users are required to pay an annual membership fee of €20.
