Pick up requested books at the Library of Science

A book you request through RUQuest can be delivered to the service desk at the Library of Science. You will receive an email when you can pick it up. You can also return it there.

In RUQuest you search the Radboud University collection. Many books are in closed stacks or at another library location on our campus. Through RUQuest you can request such a book. During this request you select "Library of Science" as pick-up location. When the book has arrived at the service desk, you can pick it up and borrow it through the borrowing machine. You can also return it via a borrowing machine at any library location on our campus: the Library of Science, the Central Library and the Law Library.

Borrowing & renewing

To borrow and request books, you must activate your campus card once through RUQuest. This is done in seconds, how to do it can be read on the Requesting and Activating a Library Card page. Borrowing is free for employees and students of Radboud University. The loan period is 28 days and is automatically extended up to 10 times as long as no one else requests the book.


Journals can also be borrowed and requested in the same way as books. In your request, clearly state which issue you need.
