For students who miss studying in the library with fellow students, the Library UvA/AUAS now offers Onlinebrary. An online environment that helps you study at home. The concentration and motivation of studying together in the library, except that you're at home.
Many students have to study at home at the moment, and that can have quite an impact. Lack of motivation, lack of a daily rhythm, lack of a fixed spot, lack of fellow students. This can lead to increased stress and study pressure. Onlinebrary is a pilot and offered to you by the Library UvA/HvA to support studying at home.
As of today, students can make use of a binaural soundscape (3D) for studying at home. Does music distract you too much while studying? Or does your study place at home not even remotely resemble that of the library? Put on your headphone or earbuds, switch on the soundscape and in no time you will imagine yourself in the study space of the Library (location: UB Singel).
From Monday 29 June to Friday 3 July, 09:00 – 18:00 hrs, it is possible to study together in the library, but from home. This so-called Digital Study Space can be visit via ZOOM and even includes programmed study breaks. Use your UvA or AUAS account to log in. After logging in to the online study environment, you will see other students studying, and you can take breaks together by withdrawing to a breakout session or joining a break programme.
