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 unlimited 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.

Change of user licence for Boomportaal and Boom Digital Library (BDB)


Publisher Boom has chosen to no longer support the Boom Digital Library (BDB). As a result, we also no longer have access to the old printings of Boom as e-books. In addition, since 1 January 2023, the THUAS library no longer offers recent Boom publishers' e-books via the Boom portal, only e-journals. However, recent paper books have been purchased and can be found in the library catalogue. If you are missing a Boom title, please send us a purchase suggestion.

We have access in Boomportaal, the digital library of publishers Boom Amsterdam and Boom Den Haag, to e-journals categorised in the fields of Political Science, Criminology, Economics and Management, Law, Education, Research, Psychology and Psychiatry.
These e-journals allow online reading and downloading, and the use of e-mail alerting or RSS to stay informed. Use the filters Type, Domain and Year on the left to narrow or specify your results when searching for journal articles.
