Easily borrow e-books and read ePub documents with Adobe Digital Editions 4.5


The Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) programme has been added to computers at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. ADE is needed to borrow an e-book from the HHs library collection for a period of one week. ADE also allows you to read ePub documents from our databases, as well as pdf files.

ADE is now standard installed on all computers. This simplifies borrowing and reading e-books, digital newspapers and other digital publications. You will find the programme at the top of the alphabetical list under added programmes to the Start menu.

When you first open an HHs eBook with ADE, you may be asked for computer authorisation. If you then check the box at the bottom left next to "Authorise computer without id", reading an eBook will proceed smoothly.

Lean Library renewed


Lean Library is a tool for seamless access to full-text content anywhere. The revamped browser extension is now available for Microsoft Edge, Opera, Firefox and Chrome and, later this year, also for Safari. The tool is now faster, more streamlined and it is easier to customize your own settings. Select The Hague University of Applied Sciences and read the onboarding information.

If you are already using Lean Library, the tool is updated automatically. But if not, you can manually update the extension to the latest version. Besides Lean Library, the library recommends using two other full-text access tools, LibKey Nomad and EndNote Click. On all THUAS computers and laptops, these tools are already installed in Microsoft Edge.
