Help ons mee de collectie van onze Howest-bibs up-to-date en relevant houden en doe een aankoopsuggestie!

Wij houden steeds de vinger aan de pols maar niemand kent de noden, trends en evoluties binnen jullie vakgebied beter dan jullie zélf.

Studenten kunnen ons steeds een mailtje sturen en personeel kan hier terecht. Je kan er heel eenvoudig een aankoopsuggestie doen voor jouw Howest-bib. Van zodra je aanvraag binnen is krijg je een mailtje en kan je je werk komen oppikken.

The borrowing term for books is standard set to 4 weeks. For work books, manuals, DVD’s, ... this is 1 week. You will receive a reminder email shortly before the return date. If necessary, you may reply to this email to prolong the term. It is also possible to make a reservation. Visit us or send us an email with the correct details of the works you want to reserve.
