In 1976, Maastricht University Library developed the concept of the Study Landscape to respond to students' needs. It consists of a combination of study spaces and learning resources, supervised by skilled librarians and with generous opening hours. The Study Landscape contains a variety of titles and types of resources, directly related to the curriculum. Text, pictures, models, diagrams, and moving images, all are present. To ensure just-in-time availability of information to all students, large numbers of titles (3–25 copies of each title) and programmes (selected by teaching staff) are bought by the library and all the necessary facilities are concentrated in one building. This chapter discusses the development of the Study Landscape over the past few decades. It addresses questions such as: How does it offer access to all the information and tools for searching, using, sharing, and building knowledge in relation to teaching and learning at Maastricht University FHML in particular)? What changes have occurred and are likely to occur in a future characterized by a knowledgeable society with growing needs for flexibility and mobility, and students that are ‘digital natives’?
