At this location

The Library of Science in the Huygens Building is the place to be for scientific literature for research and education in the science subjects. You can work with LINUX (four computers) or Microsoft on computers in our library. There are also several software packages available. In addition to regular study workplaces, there are a few for working alone in a screened-off area and others for working in a group. Several small discussion rooms are available which you can reserve.

You can reach the Library of Science by phone on +31 24 365 25 67 or by e-mail to infobfac [at] (infobfac[at]ubn[dot]ru[dot]nl).

Our Library Guide Science gives you the relevant sources and search systems for your professional field.
