The Work Room of the Department of Contemporary Printed Books is reserved for researchers who want to consult certain documents regularly and over a long period. In theory, everyone can apply for a seat in Work Room. In reality, the people who use it are usually:
- Students whose Master’s theses are based largely on sources held at the Royal Library
- Doctoral students and professors
- Journalists and authors
- Local historians
How do I submit a request for a seat?
Please send a request, stating your reasons to firstname.lastname@example.org, addressed to Bart Op de Beeck, who is in charge of the Department of Contemporary Printed Books. Please add a list of publications if you have one.
