Collaboration with other libraries

In order to offer our students and staff members the widest possible range of (electronic) literature, Hasselt University Library collaborates with Library Hasselt Limburg, Maastricht University and KU Leuven. 

A collaboration with Library Hasselt Limburg

The groups below are automatically members of Library Hasselt Limburg. They don't need to take any further action. In the course of October, every new member will receive a free library card; those who were already a member will see their membership automatically renewed.

  • UHasselt staff members (who receive a salary from UHasselt);
  • UHasselt law students;
  • UHasselt students from the School of Social Sciences.

All other Hasselt University students can also become members of Library Hasselt Limburg. In contrast to previous years (2014-2022), this is no longer done automatically for them, but on a voluntary basis. Anyone interested in a free BHL membership card can register as a Hasselt University student via the following webpage. In that case, the membership is valid until 31 October next year and can be extended every year as long as one is a student at Hasselt University.

A collaboration with Maastricht University

At the beginning of their (first) academic year, Law students (bachelors, masters, PhD students) and Biomedical Sciences students (masters, PhD students) will receive by email their UM student number + password, to consult the e-sources to which UMaastricht subscribes. The UM login data will remain valid as long as the students are affiliated with Hasselt University. In case of problems with the UM login details: contact or 0031(0)43 388 5555.

Students who want physical access to the library of Maastricht University can request a UM library card via accompanied by their date of birth and a passport photo. Tip: a passport photo can always be found in the UHasselt student file - via E-id.

A collaboration with KU Leuven

Students/staff of the faculty of Industrial Engineering are also students/staff of KU Leuven. Therefore, they have physical access to all libraries of KU Leuven as well as on and off-campus access - via their KUL login data -  to all their electronic subscriptions.

For law faculty students: have a look at the specific communication on the webpage Background and partner associations.
