We’re here to help you dive deep, research, find inspiration – and quench your thirst for knowledge
Consult the latest research findings, prepare for classes – or simply quench your thirst for knowledge at our world-class library. Our continuously-growing collection of print and online resources spans the whole spectrum of business and management topics. We offer a massive number of books and e-books, an extensive e-journal collection, a wide variety of databases and an extensive selection of national and international media.
Current students, faculty, researchers and staff alike are welcome to browse our collection and make use of our library services – in person, or online. Graduates and visitors can dive into our wealth of wisdom as walk-in users, and make use of resources on the premises. There are separate arrangements for Vlerick alumni.
The Vlerick Library is teaming-up with Lean Library (LL), offering an entirely new way of accessing content. By installing the LL browser extension, you can simply search the web and get notified by a pop-up message when content is available through the library.
Use our search platform to find everything you need. You can run basic or advanced searches of all our books, e-books, journals, academic publications, reports, video and media. Simple searches are possible without logging in.
Learn how to work with our search platform through this LibGuide.
We have a wide selection of databases containing company information, company financials, industries and financial markets. You can also access video and media databases to find news articles.
Keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening in business and society – and make use of our subscriptions to a wide variety of news sources and business magazines. These include the Financial Times and Harvard Business Review.
Join one of our regular training sessions to find out how to use our databases and online news resources. Contact the library for dates and topics of upcoming sessions.
Become a library pro! Use our LibGuides and video tutorials to find out everything you need to know about using the library – including how to use databases, access collections and learn search tips and tricks.
Digital resources are great. But if you’re looking for silence, head to the Library Loft. This cosy space is perfect for work, study and research – or even a relaxing read. Fitted out with sofas and bar stools, it’s like being in a living room – and it’s available during library opening hours.
The Library Loft has 25 seats for quiet working and reading – and they’re available on a first-come, first-served basis. And if you need to have a quick conversation without disturbing the silence, just make your way up to the loft’s calm and comfortable office space, and close the door behind you.
Find us on the ground floor of our Ghent campus – which you can get to via our main campus entrance. Our librarians are here to help you during normal opening hours.
Our Ghent campus information desk is open from Monday to Thursday from 8.30 AM to 5 PM and on Fridays from 8.30 AM to 3 PM.
During summer the library is closed over lunch from 12 - 1 p.m.
