    Most of the Design Engineering School Library’s collection is open access, with more than 30,000 monographs. It is organized by subject, and includes the specialized bibliography.

    In the Design Library we have a large collection of journals (about 180 titles), most of them specialized in the subjects of study of the School.

    Many of these journals are no longer received, but we keep them for their thematic and/or historical interest (some titles date back to the end of the 19th century).
