The UOC Library

The UOC's Library is a key service for your learning process. It offers you all the resources and services you need to successfully complete your courses and final tests. Remember these 4 key points: it's digital, with specialized resources, a comprehensive loan service and it offers you personalized attention.

What will you find at the Library?
Come on in! The Library offers a broad range of learning resources for following the courses.
  • You will have a library that can be accessed from any device 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In other words, from your mobile phone, you will be able to consult thousands of e-books or any of the 100,000 journals in digital format.
  • Have you got a question? With The Library Replies service, a team of librarians specialized in your course of study will answer your questions in less than 48 hours. Meet the people with superpowers at the UOC Library!
  • Do you want to ask for a document on loan? You can do that too. The Library works with institutions in Catalonia, Spain and the rest of Europe. So, if you need a document and it's not available in the UOC catalogue, we'll have it sent to you on loan from other centres.
  • Study beyond Google. You will find specialized resources such as databases, books and e-books, articles, dossiers and much more! Here is just a small sample of all the subject resources that are available:
