Library update: relocations 2018-2019

The Library of the African Studies Centre Leiden is planning two important relocations in the coming months:

From Wednesday 5 December 2018, 30,000 books from the ASCL collection will be temporarily moved to Leiden University Libraries at the Witte Singel 27. This concerns the books with shelf number AFRIKA 1-29999. This relocation is due to lack of space. All books can be requested and picked up at the ASCL Library (2-day service) or at the Witte Singel (1-hour service).

From 2 January 2019, the ASCL Library will undergo major maintenance. The ASCL Library will be temporarily relocated to the nearby Library of Social Sciences in the first week of January 2019. The ASCL Library will return to its own location at FSW at the beginning of March.

Some disturbances in the ASCL library services can thus be expected on 5 and 6 December, the first week of January, and at the beginning of March. The ASCL Library will be closed from Monday 24 December 2018 up to and including Friday 4 January 2019.
