The Library is working on the Onlinebrary, a pleasant, motivating and inspiring online environment in which students can settle down to concentrated study, work together and meet one another. The express objective of Onlinebrary is to provide you and your fellow students with the support you need to study at home – which in all likelihood will be necessary far more often in the new academic year than it would usually have been.

We need your help to develop this concept optimally. By taking part in the focus group you will help us develop this concept into the optimum online study environment.

What does participation in the focus group involve?

  • You will be testing the online study environment by studying there a few hours a week.
  • You will brainstorm with us to further develop the concept and optimise it.
  • You like experimenting and will contribute your own ideas and suggestions.
  • You will receive free lunch or coffee once in a while.
  • You will receive a bol.com voucher as your personal reward.

Duration and availability

  • Study online one morning or afternoon a week in the months of September, October and November.
  • Brainstorm once every two weeks in the months of September, October and November.
  • Contribute ideas for the further concept development in the months of October, November and December.

Dates and times are flexible. This means that you will be able to study online at times when you would have been studying anyhow.
