Corona virus and library services

The Library is working on a phased reopening. At the moment, our services are only aimed at students and employees of the UvA. See below for the latest updates on the phased reopening, our digital library services and corona FAQs.

Phased Reopening Library
The Library reopens within the guidelines of the UvA and RIVM. This reopening will take place in phases. This allows UvA students and staff to request and borrow printed materials again. From Tuesday 2 June, they will be able to use a limited number of study places in the UB Singel.
Urgently looking for materials?
For the UvA students and staff that are in urgent need of printed materials but unable to visit the University Library, there remains an option to make a request via our contact form (choose the option "Request materials"). Please state clearly what you need exactly (title and author, journal title, pages, etc.).
Digital Library Services
The Library is doing its utmost to support (online) education and research. Publishers and platforms also provide tools to make it somewhat easier for teachers, students and researchers.
