Safe library use in the Book Tower
Measures to slow down the spread of the Coronavirus Covid-19 will be sustained for some time. Check the official updates regularly on www.ugent.be/en/coronavirus, where you will also find details about the use of libraries.
The following safety measures are in effect:
- Wear facial cover at all times in the library.
- Disinfect your hands at the entrance to the reading room.
- The library regulations remain in force: bags, coats, food and drinks are prohibited in the Reading Room. Please use the lockers at the entrance. They will be thoroughly disinfected after each use.
- Respect the time slot allotted to you. Our staff needs the intervals to transfer collections and to keep the workspaces clean.
We ask you to respect these rules and follow the instructions of the staff for everyone’s safety.
Return your books on loan to Book Tower or your Faculty Library
Please return your books to the Book Tower, where we have safe conditions for you to collect or return your books. We will accept all UGent library books there and dispatch them to the Departments when they reopen.
If this doesn't suit you, you can also return the books in your Faculty. Please get in touch with your Faculty Library to get more precise directions and service hours: https://lib.ugent.be/en/libraries/
