An enormous amount of information can be found on the internet and in our databases, but sometimes you need just that one particular book or print journal. The collection of the University Library is at your disposal.


What do you need?

A UvA or AUAS student or staff ID card.

How do you borrow?

Where and when to collect publications, how to reserve books, how to renew the loan period, when do you get a fine: learn all the ins and outs of borrowing at the UvA.

Not held by UvA?

The Library does not have the publication you need? Borrow it from another library and have it sent to Amsterdam.

By mail?

You need an article, but are unable to come to Amsterdam? We send scans and photocopies to UvA students and staff.
