On the Bijloke campus there is a large library specializing in the visual arts, design, drama, audiovisual arts, landscape architecture, architecture and interior design. Subscriptions to the leading periodicals allow you to keep a finger on the pulse of your discipline. The library is a place of study and in the reading room you can delve into the materials. The DVD collection uncovers unusual and hard to find feature and animation films. Through a collaboration with the Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art (S.M.A.K.) the collection will grow substantially over the coming years and will find a new home on the campus that will make it even more accessible to the public.
The library is situated on Campus Bijloke.
Jozef Kluyskensstraat 2
As of June 16, 2017, the library closes for re-opening on September 30th in the new Arts Library.

The conservatory library, founded in 1835, houses almost 200,000 titles, which would add up to almost two kilometres of books. The collection comprises a wide range of specialist literature, from monographs to encyclopaedias, as well as over 400 periodicals. At its core, however, are its musical scores. As well as numerous rare editions, the most valuable pieces are undoubtedly the autograph manuscripts of Ghent composers like Mengal and Miry. The contemporary repertoire is also comprehensively represented. Now, collections are not only acquired on paper, but also in digital format. In the past few years, the range of information and knowledge available electronically has also been greatly expanded.

New arts library
KASK and S.M.A.K. will be merging their library collections into a new arts library that will house an impressive collection of books about the visual arts, architecture, photography, film, etc. The majority of which will be displayed on open shelves. With these two collections under one roof, Flanders will be getting an important and unique new library. There is no doubt that this will be a brilliant new resource for scientific research into the arts. Following a full renovation, the new arts library will move to the House of The Abbess on the Bijloke site. This will mean both libraries bidding farewell to their parental homes, and building a new life together. A separate building will considerably lower the threshold for the interested outsider. It is therefore anticipated that more external visitors will find their way to the new arts library.
