Documentation Centre

The Documentation Centre will be closed during the summer from 7 August until 4 September 2017 due to our move to Roeterseiland.

The Documentation Centre of the Institute for Information Law contains a specialized collection of books, law journals and reports in the field of information law. The collection of international law journals constitutes the core of the library. Furthermore, the collection contains books on issues like intellectual property, copyright, privacy law, freedom of expression, media law and telecommunications law. The Documentation Centre is a specialized service for the information law researchers and master students of the institute and supplements the collections of the Law Library and University Library of the University of Amsterdam.
