The UAB libraries offer an extensive documentary collection to support teaching and research: more than one million of books, nearly 75,000 periodicals and nearly 200,000 non-book materials (DVD, thesis, maps, etc.) A good part of this collection is in digital format.
Apart from this general collection, the UAB libraries have other specific holdings: special, personal and institutional collections, the university's own production, etc.
With the aim of guaranteeing a harmonious development of the collection, the UAB Libraries elaborate general and specific collection development policies. We encourage you to collaborate in this development through the library order request form, donations or exchange of publications.
There are guides that explain how to find certain types of documents or materials and other guides and thematic websites that provide information about the available resources on a specific subject or degree.
