Articles and magazines


Atria maintains a catalogue of gender equality and women’s history articles that have been published in Dutch and foreign magazines and professional journals since 1988. This catalogue now comprises ten thousands of titles. A growing number of these articles can be accessed directly online.


The extensive magazine collection provides a comprehensive representation of women and their position in society, both now and in previous centuries. We have at least one volume of more than 7,000 historic and contemporary magazines. We also have current subscriptions to almost 250 magazines, more than half of which are digital.

Viewing magazines

You can view the magazines at the library. Although most of the digital magazines can be read online, for copyright reasons a few of them can only be accessed at the library itself.


Would you like to consult a specific magazine? Request a consultation the day before you visit the library by filling out the form below. If you hand in your request before 15:00, the magazine will be ready for you the next day that the library is open.

Magazines at the University of Amsterdam

A number of magazines are too expensive to be purchased in a digital format. However, they are available at the University of Amsterdam’s digital collection. Students and staff members at the University can also access these magazines at home. Other users may view them in situ at the University’s library, which is located at Singel 425 and is within five minutes walking distance of Atria.
