Educational Resource Lists tool (Talis Aspire) enables academic institutions to manage and provide access to course materials. Teachers can easily create and manage resource lists for their courses by searching for and adding resources to the lists. These resources can include books, articles, multimedia, web pages, and more, from a variety of sources.
If you want to create your own Video, podcast or voice-over, you can do so in our Video Box or Podcast Box. Currently there is a Podcast Box in the NewMedia Centre and a Video Box in the Teaching Lab. The Video Box in the Teaching Lab is only available for Teachers but soon a New Video Box will open at the Library for the whole TU Delft Community.
The launch of our in-house developed free and open source repository software, called Djehuty. With this launch, 4TU.ResearchData was proud to move to a free and open-source software, in support of our open science efforts and overall vision.

Innovation is in our DNA. We test, develop and experiment with new media technology to explore its potential and increase its value for education and research. Our lab is located in room 084 at the TU Delft Library. That’s where the new communication tools are born to serve the TU Delft Community: many of the ideas and experiments turn into projects and move on to a production stage.
TU Library implemented the Customer Service Management System Topdesk as a backend for their One Stop Shop Customer Service. A first step in becoming the most customer friendly academic library.
We extend the possibilities of reality with the use of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality technologies. We are here to become your portal to the immersive world of XR (extended reality) and to assist students, lecturers and researchers in using, building and exploring this tech in education and research.
Trying out new technology in the public space.
When you browse and search the internet for articles, journals or databases you may find content licensed by us. However, if you are not on campus or not connected to the campus network, the website you visit does not know and will not give you access to web pages or publications. Or worse, asks you to pay for access (paywall). In these cases, the Lean Library Browser Extension will automatically show you a notification and give you access to the licensed content offered by the library.
The TU Data Repository was launched on Fedora software and ran for 10 years before switching over to Figshare.
TU Delft Library is a founding member of DataCite and consortium leader of the TU Delft DOI Consortium. TU Delft Library has established DataCite Netherlands to serve as a central research dataset registration service that helps Dutch research organizations to register DOIs for scientific resources.
In higher education and research efficently finding and judging relevant scientific information is critical. Information skills are essential for all students (Bachelor & Master) and for researchers. The TU Delft Library offers students courses to develop these information skills.
