How can I access the Library's resources and services?

The Library is open to anyone who may be interested in getting to know it. However, as a UOC community user, you have certain personalized services and restricted subscription resources available to you depending on your profile.

To gain access, just follow these login instructions:

 

Access to the Library website

You can access the Library website by one of two ways:

  • From the Virtual Campus:

Just click on the Library icon in the top menu. Remember that your Library user profile will be the one you have activated on the Campus when logging in. When you see your name on the top right corner of the website this means you have identified yourself correctly.
 

 

  • From outside the Virtual Campus​

You can sign in directly from the Library website. In this case, you should bear in mind that your Library user profile is the same as the one you use to access the Campus. To sign in from the Virtual Library homepage, click on “Log in” and sign in as a UOC user with your Virtual Campus username and password.
 

Access to the Library services

To access some services, such as lending or the document supply service, you will have to identify yourself using your first surname and UOC card number.​
 

 

A message like the one will appear:

  • If you don't have your card yet, enter the number 20 plus your Spanish ID card (DNI) number without the final letter.
     
  • If you have difficulty logging in or you don't have a Spanish ID card, just a passport or a foreigner ID number (NIE), or if this is the first time you are logging in, contact us through The Library Replies.

Access to the search engine

To access the personalized functions of the Library's search engine, such as My cart or My account, which lets you view your reading history, lists or loans record, you will need to identify yourself using your first surname and UOC card number.
 

 

  • If you don't have your card yet, enter the number 20 plus your Spanish ID card (DNI) number without the final letter.
     

  • If you have difficulty logging on or you don't have a Spanish ID card, just a passport or a foreigner ID number (NIE), or if this is the first time you are logging in, contact us through The Library Replies.

Access to electronic resources:

Depending on your profile, you may be able to access subscription electronic resources. You will just have to enter your UOC Campus admission details.

A message like the one will appear:

 


 

On some digital platforms like ISI WOS, JCR and SABI, a message like this one will appear, where you will have to select the UOC in the list of universities. If you are trying to access a Library resource from one of the University's institutional centres or by e-work, the UOC's IP address may be automatically detected, so you won't need to give your details.
