Library

The CWI library has a unique collection of books, journals and reports on mathematics and computer science. Membership is open to everyone.

 

The Library is closed until further notice

Update 29 September: Following the recommendations of the government and our management team, we have decided to stay at home for the time being. If you want to return borrowed books, you can leave them at the front desk near the main entrance of CWI. If you want to borrow books you have found in our catalogue, we will try to find a way to get them to you.

For all library related questions (also loans, renewals) don't hesitate to contact us at bibl@cwi.nl.
