BIBLIOGRAPHIC COLLECTION Most of the Design Engineering collections are freely accessible. They are organised by subject and contains the necessary specialised bibliography necessary for the degrees taught in this school. Each group of subjects is assigned a bookcase (shelf or set of shelves in which books of the same subject are arranged)

The key piece of information to locate a book is the code called "signature". It provides information on the library, the bookcase and the sequential order of the book in the bookcase, for example P 3-57/254:

Library Bookcase Secuential order





The Library has two storerooms and other closed access rooms, where Final Degree Projects, Old Books, Bulletins, part of our Newspaper Archive (free access only for the last 5 years) and the donation from Professor Pedro Coca are stored. The whole collection can be located through Polibuscador. You may check the documents that are not in the library through the reservations or by asking at the desk.

At the moment, our bibliographical collection consists of around 30,000 monographs..

Reference documents (dictionaries, glossaries, encyclopaedias...), corresponding to cupboard O-G are excluded from the loan services and are only allowed to be used in the library. .

Remember that to locate the information you need you can check Polibuscador from any Library computer.
