Q. I am not affiliated with Leiden University, but I would like to borrow books and become a member. Is this possible?


Yes, this is possible. A library account and LU-Card (library card) for visitors can be made in person only, at one of our library desks with the exception of the Law Library. Please check our staffed desk hours. Don't forget to bring an ID (passport, ID-card or Dutch driver’s license) and proof of your current residential address.

Given the dynamic nature of the corona guidelines, please check with the library location of your choice before visiting to register for a library card.

To access the Leiden University Archives you do not need a library account.
