Documentation Centre / IViR Room

The Documentation Centre or IViR Room 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.

Visiting the IViR Room
The IViR Room serves primarily as a resource for IVIR staff members and is used for workshops, meetings, seminars etc. Therefore, it is only limited open to students (Master Information Law) and the general public.

Opening hours:
Tuesday: 10.00 – 17.00 hours
Thursday: 10.00 – 17.00 hours

It may happen that the IViR Room is used for internal meetings or other activities during the opening hours, which means it is then not possible to visit the IViR Room. Visiting the IViR Room outside these opening hours is sometimes possible, but only by appointment. See contact details below to get in touch.
It is possible to photocopy, but books and journals are not lend out.
