Teaching with Book Tower Special Collections
Ghent University Library encourages the growing usage of its special collections in the curriculum. If you want to teach with the actual historic items present, this can be arranged in the Book Tower.
However, during the restauration and the temporary housing in the former HIKO-building, there is only one room available and this space is not accessible for wheelchair users.
If intensive consultation of specific items is not possible, the library staff might suggest alternatives for your request. Specific arrangements will be made on how to consult the items and the teaching staff is responsible for the items during the course.
As usually in the reading room, only pencils are allowed and all personal belongings must be stored outside.
Please consult Hendrik Defoort to make inquiries about possibilities.
