Students and Staff of the UvA and external visitors are most welcome in the Reading Room. The opening hours are Monday through Friday from 9:30 am - 5:00 pm.
Please note: Due to repair work, the elevator between the depositories and the Reading Room cannot be used 16-24 January. Heavy, large-format books will therefore not be delivered during this period. We apologise for the inconvenience.
There are 40 workplaces in the Reading Room, available exclusively for consulting heritage material and the books from the reference libraries. In addition, there are two viewing PCs for consulting the catalogue and two login PCs for UvA students and staff. There is also a microfiche reader. The tables are equipped with power points and there is open WIFI.
