Quick tip – Check if the Archives are Open

If you are planning to do on-site research in the Netherlands, check their website or contact the archive to make sure they are open.

Most archives have announced their reading rooms are closed until further notice, to prevent spreading COVID-19. Check the opening hours (“openingstijden”) and look for news announcements mentioning COVID-19 or corona.
