The CEDLA Library has an extensive collection covering the social sciences, economy, human geography, history and culture of Latin America. The collection consists of books, journals, CD-ROMs, microfiches and microfilms. Our collection can be searched through the UvA CataloguePlus or the UvA Catalogue. There are facilities for reading, studying, printing, copying and scanning.

You can visit the library to search for books on the open shelves and to consult or borrow them. It is also possible to request the books to be collected at another library of the UvA. This can be done online through the catalogues. We recommend you to request the books published before 1990, as these are on closed shelves in another building.

If you are a member of another Dutch library and are interested in a publication from the CEDLA collection, you may submit an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request at you own library to have the publication sent to that library. For information about the cost involved, please inquire at your own library.

The CEDLA Library is located at Roetersstraat 33, 1018 WB Amsterdam.
