Een boek uit een van de bijzondere collecties van de Radboud Universiteit

Radboud University is the keeper and caretaker of a huge wealth of material and immaterial heritage. You can consult these collections at the Heritage collections reading room. We welcome all students and researchers who are interested in subjects like politics, religion, literature, art, culture, education, healthcare, the mission and colonial history.

Heritage Collections

The heritage collections are subdivided between three departments. Please make an appointment with one of these three department before visiting the heritage collections reading room: At the KDC you will find diverse archive collections about the history of Dutch Catholicism since 1800; at the Special collections you will find a substantial library of rare books, manuscripts and prints from the middle ages onwards; and at the University Archives you will find all material related to the history of Radboud University itself.
