Scan, copy and print
Scanners, copiers and printers can be found throughout the Leiden University Libraries' locations.
Library access during coronavirus measures
Due to limited seating capacity per room, all study places need to be booked in advance; this includes the study places marked with a light blue sticker. Only Leiden University students can reserve study places.
For the time being, several visitor groups do not have access to the libraries.
