Dutch Studies

Introduction

Welcome to the UCLA Library's Dutch Studies Research Guide. UCLA's Dutch Studies program is "the largest program in the US focused on the study of the Netherlands and Belgium in a global perspective." This research guide is intended to support the program's mission "to foster a multi-disciplinary and global perspective that strengthens and diversifies the Dutch Studies academic and cultural initiatives at UCLA." To learn more, see Dutch Studies at UCLA.

If you have suggestions for this guide, or if you need research assistance, please contact the Librarian/Curator for European Studies

UC Library Search

UC Library Search, the University of California Libraries' new discovery tool, replaces the UCLA Library Catalog and Melvyl as the way to discover items across the University of California system.

Connecting from Off-Campus: VPN & Proxy Tutorials

The UCLA Library's online subscription resources can always be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCLA, students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using one of the methods below.
