History of the collection

Initially, there were five libraries in the Department of Art History, Musicology and Theatre Studies:

  • Ethnic arts (L67) - ground floor Blandijn
  • Plastic arts (L70) - first floor HIKO
  • Architecture (L64) - first floor HIKO
  • Musicology (L66) - second floor Blandijn / second floor Rozier
  • Theatre (L52) - ground floor HIKO / second floor Rozier

In 2007, the libraries of the music and theatre sciences merged at Rozier 44 (2nd floor - block C). A year later, this library moved to the Blandijn (on the former location of the disbanded library of the ethnic arts).

In the autumn of 2015, the Theatre Studies collection was transferred to the Faculty Library of Arts and Philosophy. Part of the collection was stored in the depot (mainly less topical works).
