Visiting the library

The African Library is accessible using the main entrance of the Herta Mohr Building. The library is situated on the ground floor.


Most African Library materials can be borrowed at the African Library desk. Materials can also be requested using the Leiden University Libraries (UBL) catalogue, to be picked up at a later time at the pick-up location of your choice.

Part of the African Studies Centre Leiden collection is placed in the University Library's closed stacks. Most of these materials can also be borrowed. In case you would want to pick up any stack items the same working day, please choose pick-up location ‘University Library’ from the drop-down menu upon requesting.
