Nexis Uni

From October 16th onwards you will have the opportunity to test Nexis Uni, an international press database already available in many other educational institutions in Flanders and beyond.

Nexis Uni:

  • is an academic database providing access to thousands of internationally renowned newspapers and news publications, but also many trade magazines and even a selection of Springer journals.
  • allows you to read the daily news, with an archive that goes back many years, in many different languages. It’s a way to follow daily news in all disciplines and subjects, and to dive into news items from the past.
  • also contains a large amount of information about companies and organizations (both financial and operational) and of course follows trends in society (ChatGPT, etc.).

Practical information:

You can try Nexis Uni unlimitedly between Monday October 16th and Sunday October 29th. For practical reasons you will be asked to create an account using your UGent-mail address via this Nexis Uni® Registration. This is necessary for the trial only and takes just two minutes. Should you want to log in at a later stage, please use nexisuni.com and your newly created Nexis Uni account. Please connect through the UGentNet (= on campus via fixed network or Eduroam, off campus via VPN or Athena).

Online demonstration:

To give you a better insight into the contents of this database and to learn quickly how to use it, we organise an online demo session on Thursday October 19th (11:00-12:00). You can join via this Teams link (registration is not required).

You can get started yourself with the information in the links below:

New opening hours for the circulation desk starting 9 October

We're two weeks into the academic year by now and we've have been able to gather some feedback on our new opening hours for the circulation desk. We've noticed that, contrary to our expectations, visitors do like to pass by our desk on Fridays, and that hours around noon seem to be the preferred time for a visit.

Of course we want to serve you as well as possible, so we're adjusting our hours to reflect this observation:

  • Monday 09:00 - 18:00
  • Tuesday 11:00 - 14:00
  • Wednesday 09:00 - 18:00
  • Thursday 11:00 - 14:00
  • Friday 11:00 - 14:00

As you can see: you can bring your inquiries to us every day between 11:00 - 14:00. On Mondays and Wednesdays the desk is open a little longer. See you then!

New opening hours as of academic year 2023-2024

Ghent is slowly filling up with students again and we hope to welcome you to the library soon too! In academic year 2023-2024, the library is implementing some changes: the opening hours of the study rooms will be separated from our services at the circulation desk.

For inquiries, borrowing books, reservations, returns, library staff will be available at the following times:

  • Monday 09:00 - 18:00
  • Tuesday 13:30 - 18:00
  • Wednesday 09:00 - 18:00
  • Thursday 09:00 - 13:30

Study areas remain available on a continuous basis Monday through Thursday from 09:00 - 18:00 and on Friday from 09:00 - 15:00. Scans of articles and chapters can still be requested 24/7 via lib.ugent.be. And, of course, you can also return books via the return box, which you can find next to the library's entrance.

scanYes we scan!

Are you in urgent need of a particular chapter or article? Don’t worry!

First, have a look to see if the article is available online (e.g. via Google Scholar). If not, we’ll be happy to scan it for you. You can request any article, chapter, table of contents, index, glossary, bibliography, reference list, etc. from our print collection via lib.ugent.be.

Search the collections by the title of the journal or book. Then, click on ‘Request scanned article’ or ‘Get a chapter scanned’. The request form allows you to specify what you’re looking for exactly. We’ll deliver the PDF to you as soon as possible.

Denk na voor je print.Prints, copies and scans

Students can only print, copy and scan with a UGent card on the public multifunctionals. These are located in the entrance hall (ground floor).

You can find all info and how-tos at helpdesk.ugent.be/publicrepro/en/student.

You can not only print on a public UGent computer, but also from your personal computer. In other words: you can generate print jobs while in class or even from home.

How? Open your document via an application in Athena (e.g. Ufora, your preferred browser or File Explorer) and select the ‘Ricoh on pcounter’ printer. Go to a public multifunctional the same calendar day you sent the print job and print as usual.

You can also use the virtual printer ‘PDFCreator’ to save files as PDF.

Top up your account for prints and copies via ugent.mynetpay.be. You can also use Epurse to pay in student restaurants and cafeterias. More information on Epurse can be found at helpdesk.ugent.be/epurse/en.
