The Library and Documentation Service is an essential tool for study, learning and research. The University has four campus libraries and three documentation centres:
Cappont Library, which also houses the Information and Documentation for Development Centre and the Centre for Women’s Studies and Documentation.
Health Sciences Library.
ETSEA Library, which houses the European Documentation Centre.
The libraries are open to the public Monday through Friday, from 9 to 21.30 h. During exam periods, all of the libraries are also open on Saturdays, from 9 to 14 h. In addition, the Arts Library is open at weekends all year round, with the exception of certain dates.
All of the libraries offer a wide range of services, including the loan of documents, laptops and USB memory sticks; training sessions for users; document retrieval; reprographics; individual workspaces and rooms for group work, etc. Library users may also use the UdL catalogue, which
contains the bibliographic references of all the documents held by the Service and the University Union Collective Catalogue of Catalonia.
There is also a digital library, which offers services and electronic resources such as the metasearch engine metaCercador (books, journals, databases, theses, press, official gazettes, etc.), electronic dossiers (articles, problems, slides, etc.) and thematic guides.
Students must have a valid UdL ID card to use the services. For further information: www.bib.udl.cat.
