1. What can I do so that UAB libraries purchase a document that interests me?

 

  • If you are a student:
    If you miss any document that you believe to be necessary or interesting about the subjects taught at your faculty, you can make suggestions for the purchase with a desideratum. A desideratum is a purchase request form, where we ask for the item information, and that you will find in electronic format. To review for relevance, all fields must be filled out, especially the “Reason”. In any case you will be informed about the process of your request, whether it has been accepted or not and the reason why.


2. How can I find a document that is not in the library collection of the UAB?

 

  • If the document is in one of the libraries among the member institutions of the Consortium of University Services of Catalonia (CSUC), you can request it by Consortial Loan (PUC) . For further information, please consult the consortial borrowing section within the FAQ.

  • If you are a UAB member, you can use the Interlibrary Loan Service, which places the request to an institution that owns the item. For further information, please consult the Interlibrary Loan section in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
     


3. Can I donate documents to the library?

 

  • Donations have historically been an important base for the development and growth of libraries. The Autonomous University of Barcelona appreciates the great importance they have played in shaping their collections, but for this reason, we cant not accept any document without taking into account the parameters of quality, relevance or physical condition, among others.

  • For further information, please consult the Donations section of our website as well as the form to get in touch with the Library
