How it works?
If you need a book that is not yet available in our collection, you can make a request by completing the fields on the form.
Once we have received the request, we will consider it and send a message to your UOC email address. We will give priority to digital content.
Materials on analogue media will only be considered, as an exception, if no digital options are available.
Frequently Asked Questions
You can request any books relating to teaching, learning and research at the UOC. Digital titles will be given priority, and we will only send you a paper version if the book is not available in digital format.
The document delivery time depends on the title requested, its availability and the publishing group or distributor that supplies it. In the case of paper books, you also have to take into account the number of days required for shipping (domestically or internationally).
The UOC Library will cover the cost of purchasing the books.
To donate documents to the UOC Library, send us a list of titles to the email address email@example.com, and our team will consider adding them to our collection based on the University's areas of study and research.
Please contact our team before bringing any books in person. Once the donation has been approved, a delivery date will be agreed.
