The thematic division of our library corresponds to the key themes of our research: arms trade/security, the exploitation of natural resources, and corporate social responsibility. In addition to this, there is a separate section with reference books and general publications on Sub-Saharan Africa (for example politics, history etc.).
The formation of the collection is the responsibility of our researchers. It is of vital importance for their information gathering. By permanently processing purchased and otherwise acquired publications, they can expand their expertise.
Our cooperation with Anet
Since 2015, IPIS has been collaborating with Anet, the library network of the University of Antwerp, connecting about twenty scientific libraries in Flanders. All these libraries use the Brocade Library Services as a system. Brocade is a fully integrated and web-based system, developed by the University of Antwerp since 1998. The catalog contains about 2.500.000 entries. The integragion of our library in this system ensures that the specialised collection of books, journals, and IPIS reports are open to to the scientific research community and interested public.
