Universiteitsbibliotheek Utrecht Binnenstad (UBB)

It is such a shame to see such a nice building in a great location being managed so poorly. The employees are bored to death, unkind and always unwilling to help and ready for some irony. Every encounter with them to date (with very few exceptions) has ranged from unacceptable to infuriating!
Got a tour of the place. Beautiful architecture and great history. Visitors should pay extra attention to the front doors and there is a café you can relax in.
If it's your first time in this (beautiful) library, be prepared to get lost a few times. Would like to see a lot more study places, every spot was already taken at 09:45. It just generally feels they didn't use the space of the building efficiently.
I used to like the old library but love how the new version looks like. Good selection of academic reading material and well-placed throughout the building. And this at the front cafe is brilliant...
Gorgeous building, very light and spacious. It can get very full sometimes, but if you can get yourself a spot it's nice to work there. It's not always very clean, especially the toilets and private/group studyrooms.
It is kind of a maze though, there are many many confusing doors, paths, rooms, etc, so it's easy to lose your way. You usually can't simply walk in the right direction and end up where you wanted to be.
There are lots of signs though, so eventually you'll always end up in the right place.
