Libraries and workspaces

University of Liège’s libraries are accessible to students, researchers, teachers or other members of the staff of ULiège, but also to any outside visitor upon prior registration in one of the locations.




he Libraries of the University of Liège are meant to be made available to members of the university community and to the public the information and documentation that they need in their roles as learners, teachers, and researchers. The Network is also the guarantor of an exceptional heritage that it is tasked with preserving and promoting.

All members of the community of the University of Liège (students, researchers, teachers or other members of the personnel, including from the University Hospital) are automatically registered for the libraries of the University and have access to all the sites (upon presentation of the student card or personnel badge) as well as to the online resources.

Any other non-member of the university community can also access all the locations on the basis of prior registration, which leads to a reader card or ID.
