Scientific Description
The VLIZ Library manages an extensive collection of (inter)national marine scientific literature. The Library's collection consists of books, maps, periodicals, articles, reports and theses, and can be searched via the online catalogue. Every week an overview of new acquisitions is sent out via e-mail.

VLIZ supports open scientific communication. Therefore, the VLIZ Library provides the Open Marine Archive (OMA), giving access to the larger part of the Belgian marine literature.

Publications from the VLIZ Library collection are not available for loan, but all documents can be consulted at the library, and copied or scanned (except for complete books). We provide a document delivery service for all marine literature. Send your requests to library@vliz.be.

The library is open to the public on working days from 08:30-12:30 and 13:00-16:00.
