Mission and policy

The UvA/AUAS Library is an inspiring and welcoming space for researchers, lecturers and students to study, do research and meet, both on and off line. The Library:

1. Collects, keeps, manages and selects information

We collect, keep, manage and select information from the global information supply. We offer a platform to students and researchers to share resources both from the past and the present, and thus make this information available to a wide range of users.

2. Offers tailor-made support

We provide tailor-made support to our users to find the right sources in the extensive supply of information, for application in research and teaching.

3. Is also a museum

In this regard, we make use of our unique combination of libraries and museum. This way we try to move knowledge forward and help to improve the quality of higher education in Amsterdam.

See our Policy statement: 'We move knowledge forward' [Dutch]
