Would you like to see a selection of our gems up close and hear our Special Collections staff talk about them? The University Library regularly gives tours for UM staff, students, and external visitors, both in Dutch and English. We can make this possible for individuals and groups up to 10 people. The 45-minute tour can be adapted to a group’s particular field of interest and includes the Parlour reading room and the closed stacks. A place you will never get to see as a library visitor.

If you want to know more about our depot or Special Collections, or if you want to book a tour, you can contact a Collection specialist.
