ASIMUT scheduling system manuals

This program offers you a personal schedule and the possibility to book rooms. ASIMUT is an online application, so you can access it not only from the KABK, but also from home or while travelling.

In order to check your timetable, you need to log in to ASIMUT using your student number and password. You can access ASIMUT via https://kabk.asimut.net.

At the Academy, there are two timetable kiosks, where you can check your schedule or book a room using your student card.

You can also add your schedule to the calendar on your smartphone or tablet.

Below, you will find a short introduction video about ASIMUT, as well as some tutorials.

Library catalogue manuals

The online catalogue contains almost the complete collection of the library. All records of books, magazines, DVDs and CD-ROMs have keywords, making them accessible in different ways.

Search the catalogue

The catalogue can be searched using two search methods: “Index search” and “Basic search” (see tabs).

"Index search" searches via alphabetical lists. In a next step, the titles associated with them will be displayed.

The “Basic search” directly leads to a list of titles. This can be a disadvantage if you carry out an extensive search as it provides a list of titles which may include irrelevant results.

The search method “Index search” is more effective because it is less biased.

In the online catalogue there are interesting articles from journals (from 2006 till now) to which the KABK subscribed. Magazine articles prior to 2006 can be found in the Card Catalogue in the Library.

At the beginning of each school-year there will be introductory classes 'library use' for first-year students and interested students from higher years of study.Special attention is given to the use of the automatized catalogue.

Users Only students and staff of the University of the Arts, The Hague (Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatory) are allowed to borrow books. They need to show their student or staff card at the library. The library does not participate in the Interlibrary Loan. Therefore it is not possible to request library materials from another library. To renew or reserve library materials you need to be logged on.
