Our library and documentation centre moved to the Royal Library of Brussels in 2018.

The library and documentation centre of the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences hosted the books published by the Academy together with many books and periodicals concerning the main areas of overseas sciences (Africa, Latin America and Asia).

This collection was the result of years of exchange with about 150 Belgian and foreign scientific and cultural institutions.

The Brussels Royal Library has committed itself to maintaining the collection under optimum conditions and to ensuring public access.


The Royal Library of Belgium is open from Monday to Friday (9 a.m. - 7 p.m.) and on Saturdays (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.). For more information, see here.

The collection of the library can be accessed through OPAC.
