Due to the antiCOVID-19 measures, the library's spaces and services are undergoing modifications to adapt them to the new situation.

For any questions about them, get in touch with us through our Chat, by PoliConsulta or by phone.

Users cannot directly access the books on the shelves, they must previously request them through PoliBuscador.

To borrow paper books or magazines, movies, etc., follow these instructions:

1. Identify yourself in Polibuscador.

2. Find the copy you want to borrow.

3. In REQUEST OPTIONS, click on “Request”.

4. When the book is available, the library will send you an email.

5. Once you have received the email, you can request an appointment with the loan desk using the PoliCita app. Remember, you have two days to collect your reservations from the date you receive the confirmation email.

6. Go to your appointment to borrow the documents.

This course is going to be different because of the coronavirus. For that reason we have adapted our spaces and services so the university community can continue to have access to library resources.

All members of the university community are responsible for complying with the measures aimed at controlling and reducing the transmission of COVID-19. It is up to everyone to keep contagions away from our university.

Thank you fou your patience and understanding.

Finding and accessing materials:

To search for a document, go to PoliBuscador and enter the search in the "Catálogo" (Catalogue) tab. Type the title, author or subject of the document you are looking for. You can filter your search by choosing the type of item you are looking for (books, films, maps, journals, etc.) and the field corresponding to the data you entered.

A list with one or multiple results will be displayed, choose the one that interests you, select the Library of your choice and write down the "Signatura" (Call number).

In the previous example, the Signatura is B 0-21/3193

  • The letterB corresponds to the Central Library.
  • The code 0-21 corresponds to the shelf where the book is located; Physics in this case. If you look for it in the Bookshelves Directory, you will see that it is in La Tierra room.
  • The number 3193 corresponds to the location on the shelf.

Documents located in the Store Room (Depósito):

In Polibuscador, the documents that are located on the shelves and which are freely accessible by users, have Biblioteca Central plus the name of the room corresponding to them as their location.

However, other documents that have Depósito (Store Room) as its location are not accessible directly by users. To access a document located in the Store Room you must make a reservation through the catalogue. When the item is available to collect, you will receive a notification by email, usually on the same day, and you may pick it up at the 2nd floor circulation desk within 2 days.
