How can I make an online reservation?

For viewing records in the reading room (free of charge) you need to make an online reservation. For your first reservation, you need to register and create an extended profile on this website. 

If you have not yet created a profile, you need to create one. It is important that you don't forget to fill in your address.

  • If you do have a profile but have not yet entered your address, you will need to log in and complete your profile.
  • If you already have an extended profile, you can simply log in.

When you have logged on into your extended profile, go to ‘Collection’ and search through the archive inventories for the record you are looking for. If you already know exactly what catalogue reference and inventory number you are looking for, you can enter that section straight away. When you have the correct record on the screen, click on it to complete the reservation. Don’t forget to fill in your visiting date.

If you have logged in with an extended profile but are unable to reserve a specific catalogue reference and inventory number, contact our helpdesk using the contact form or call +31 (0)70 3315444.

You will find more information on reserving records in ‘Visiting the reading room’. is a website of the National Archives of The Netherlands in cooperation with the Society for the National Archives and Spaarnestad Photo.
