Documentation Centre

The Documentation Centre of the Institute for Information Law contains a specialized collection of books, law journals and reports in the field of information law. The collection of international law journals constitutes the core of the library. Furthermore, the collection contains books on issues like intellectual property, copyright, privacy law, freedom of expression, media law and telecommunications law. The Documentation Centre is a specialized service for the information law researchers and master students of the institute and supplements the collections of the Law Library and University Library of the University of Amsterdam.

Visiting the Documentation Centre
The Documentation Centre serves primarily as a resource for IVIR staff members and is used for workshops, meetings, seminars etc. Therefore, it is only limited open to students (Master Information Law) and the general public.

Opening hours:
Tuesday: 10.00 – 17.00 hours
Thursday: 10.00 – 17.00 hours

It may happen that the documentation centre is used for internal meetings during these days, which means it is then not possible to visit the documentation centre. Visiting the Documentation Centre outside these opening hours is sometimes possible, but only by appointment. See contact details below to get in touch.
It is possible to photocopy, but books and journals are not lend out. A study area with 30 places is available, as well as access to Eduroam wifi.
