Collection & Catalogue
The NINO library comprises over 50,000 volumes related to Assyriology, Egyptology, ancient Palestine and Islamic art and architecture. The volumes are directly accessible for visitors. As the collection is meant primarily for study purposes, the volumes do not circulate. The library welcomes an average of 9,000 visitors yearly, from both the Netherlands and abroad.
The online catalogue of the NINO library is available through http://catalogus.leidenuniv.nl (Leiden University's library catalogue), under the subcategory "Leiden collections".
