The push notifications of the H/Library app is not functioning properly. The library is aware of this, unfortunately we depend on an external supplier. In February there will be an update of the app. As soon as the update is available, we will communicate ​this through the library website and social media.

The HHS library app can be downloaded for consulting the catalogue and the availability of items from the library. With this app it is possible for employees and students of the university of applied sciences to extend the lending period of library items with their personal university account and to set a reminder for the expiry of the loan period.

The library attaches importance to the privacy of users of the library app. Therefore, the library will carefully handle your personal data while respecting the General Data Protection Regulation. This unique Library app therefore asks for verification to log in with your HHs login. Camera use within this app is only applied as a barcode scanner. For further details on privacy data, see the privacy regulations of The Hague University of Applied Sciences and the general terms and conditions. If you download and use the library app, you agree to these terms and conditions.

This college library app is available free for Android and IOS.

What you can do with the app

When you log in with your THUAS account, you can use this app to check your borrowing information, renew your books and consult the library catalogue. By scanning a book’s ISBN barcode, you can quickly see if the library has this book in its collection.

You can also set up push notifications: to get an alert to check out a book you reserved, or to get a reminder that the books you borrowed are almost due. This will help you avoid unnecessary fines! The app also gives you contact details for the various library locations and a link to the library website.
