Library and Access to documentary Resources


The Library is a resource centre for learning and Research covering an area of 1650 m², equipped with a wireless network and featuring the following equipment: 294 workstations, 8 work rooms, and 1 computer room.

It offers users 62 PCs/terminals to give access, according to the profile established for each user, to all the computer applications necessary for the development of their training. It also has printers, CD players, DVD players, scanners, etc.

The usual opening hours are from 7:45 pm to 0:00 midnight, except in the periods of exams, when it stays open until 2:00 am, adapting its schedule to the needs of the students.

In order to fulfil the tasks assigned to it, the library offers, among other things, the following information resources:

  • Access to the joint catalogue of MU libraries and links from them to other catalogues.
  • Access to the most relevant information in the engineering world through the Engineering Village portal, with access to Compendex and Inspect, ISI Web of Knowledge portal, CSIC databases, etc.
  • Access to electronic journals.
  • Access to the electronic summary alert service, as well as electronic alert services of other Universities with which it collaborates (Dialnet) and major electronic summary sources (Ingenta, etc.)
  • Access to Refwoks (application for management of bibliographic references).
     

Among the services provided, the following stand out:

  • Specialised bibliographic information.
  • Interlibrary loans.
  • Communications card loan for access to wireless networks, laptops, camcorders, and equipment for images display, processing and editing.
  • Training courses for students, professors and researchers to use the library and the information resources offered.
     

OTHER FACILITIES AT THE SERVICE OF STUDENTS

This section includes several common spaces that, without being directly linked to the academic training of the students or to any specific teaching, contribute to their integration at the university campus and their personal development, such as:
