What can I do in the libraries?
Found something in another bib? Interlibrary loan!
You found something interesting on another Howest campus or in another institution or library? No panic. We will have it transferred for you, for free.
You only have to fill in the application form. We’ll send you the article as soon as possible via email or inform you when the book is waiting for you in our library.
Register, borrow, prolong and reserve
Every Howest student and staff member is automatically a member of our library and can use our services for free. This also applies to all students and staff members of our partners within the UGent association.
To external persons, we ask a warranty of €10. They can consult our databases in our libraries after having applied for a ‘guest account’, this is not possible from home.
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. We will inform you as soon as it is available.
