What others say
Testimonials from Maastricht University researchers with regards to the library services for researchers.
This EndNote course taught me advanced features. Since my literature management and process of systematic review has considerably changed.
Friederike J.S. Thilo
At the introduction meeting, I got acquainted with the Virtual Research Environment (a service to share files within the research team) and with the Dataverse Network (a progressive approach to archive, link to, and possibly share research data in a scientifically sound manner).”
It was a great way of meeting not only library experts but also other new researchers.
Dr. Aline Sierp
This e-journal management tool is great! Not only for publishing the articles, but also for managing the submission process online.
Dr. Anke Sambeth
