Our collection can be consulted in the reading room (Mon - Fri: 9 - 17 you).

Since we are renovating, we have moved our reading room to Het Liberaal Archief (from 2 May 2016 to September (estimated) 2017).

To consult archival documents and library material, make a reservation through the catalogue (see demo). For this you need to log in first, and create an account. You will receive an e-mail when the documents are available. This may take a few days, but never longer than a week.

If you do not find what you want, or you can not reserve certain matters, send us an
email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Archives can only be requested at item level. If you plan to consult a larger share of items or a complete archive, you can indicate this in the reservation form (Comments). There you can also specify which volumes or numbers of magazines you want to consult.


Digitized documents or documents that are available online can not be accessed in the reading room. This applies to image documents, digitized journals, inventories of archives etc.
