General access computers

University Library

In most UvA libraries there are general access computers to consult the UvA catalogue and our electronic resources. They do not provide free access to the Internet. Their use is free and no log-in is required.

It is possible to

  • Download to a USB stick from a number of databases.
  • Send search results to an email address (some PDF files can be sent to a UvA email address only).
  • Print with a prepaid printcard, payable at the desks with a library pass with deposit.

Where are they

You'll find these PCs in the University Library at Singel (9), Library Learning Centre Roeterseiland Campus (3), Science Library (1), Special Collections (4), Law Library (11) and P.C. Hoofthuis Library (4)

In the Medical Library of AMC (Amsterdam Medical Centre) there are no general access computers, but external visitors can get a temporary log-in account from the library desk.
