From this date on, we would like to bring digital information directly to you from any location in the world. This new remote access service enables our users to access our online sources with only a Library card number and password. On our homepage, you will find a link ‘Remote login access’. Click this link and log in with your Library card username and password.

    Happy Retirement Ingrid!

    January 9, 2015

    [On the retirement of our curator Ingrid Kost; blog in Dutch] Vandaag 15 januari 2015 is een memorabele dag voor de bibliotheek van het Vredespaleis. Wij nemen na 39 jaar afscheid van onze collega Ingrid Kost. Zij zal genieten van een welverdiend pensioen. Tijd om andere dingen te gaan doen, zoals oppassen op de kleinkinderen en bijenhouden. Wij zullen haar deerlijk missen als collega en als mens. Alvorens vandaag afscheid te nemen, spraken wij met haar en haalden herinneringen op.
