Library services: Did you know that more than 22 thousand patents and policy reports are using research from the VU and VU Medical Center to make new technologies and helping governments and NGO's making decisions based on facts? Curious about if your articles are used in patents, the world health organisation, the IPCC, the guardian or time magazine? The VU Library offers a free Altmetric Explorer service for VU University and VU Medical Center researchers.
