Material from the Allard Pierson collections can be consulted in the Research Room. Frequently consulted reference works are also available in the Research Room, and in the Rosenthaliana, Book History and Mennonitica period rooms.
You can visit the Reading Room at the Allard Pierson to view material such as manuscripts, printed books, atlases, maps, letters, prints and photographs. There are 40 study spaces available. You can use two PCs to consult the catalogue without logging in, while UvA staff and students can log in on two separate PCs. A multifunctional and a microfiche reader/printer are also available. The Research Room also houses various reference libraries and the Bibliotheca Rosenthaliana, Book History and Mennonitica period rooms as well as the Map Room.
UvA students and staff can use the wireless UvA network. Staff and students from other universities can connect to the Eduroam network. The UvA Open Wi-Fi network is also available, although this is the slowest and least safe network.
