How to apply for a library card
If you want to use any of the services offered at the library (book lending, interlibrary loan…) you’ll need a Library Card. In order to get your library card, just bring us an ID photo and your ID card, passport or similar.
How to find the reading list recommended by lecturers
The Reading List or Recommended Bibliography are the documents suggested by the lecturers for each subject during the academic year.
You can access to the Reading List in the web page of the library:
  • in the start menu click on "Search", and then on "Recommended Bibliography"
  • in the library catalogue there is also a link to the reading list (Bibliografía Recomendada)
You can search in the Reading List both by the lecturer's surname and by subject.
This tutorial can help you to find the Reading List if the indications above are not clear enough.
How to use the library catalogue
You can use the catalogue:
  • To find books, journals, theses, dvd’s…
  • To check your user registration (with your library or university card), which allows you to see the due dates for your borrowings, renew your loans, create alerts to return a book, save your searches in the catalogue…
  • To consult the recommended bibliography by lecturer or subject.
  • To access to electronic resources (e-journals, e-books, databases...).
  • To make suggestions and complaints about the library service.


The following tutorial will show you how to use the catalogue of the library 

How to borrow, reserve & renew books from the library
Students can borrow up to five items at the same time from any of the libraries of the University of Vigo. The borrowing has a limit of 14 days, and the students have the posibility to make up to two renewals.
The items can be renewed at the check-out desk, through the web page of the library catalogue, or by phone.
If you want to reserve a book which is already borrowed, you can ask at the check-out desk or send us an email.



Intercampus loan
You can request available materials in a library from all the campus at the University of Vigo. You only have to ask for this service at the check-out desk, but you can also apply for the items by phone or via e-mail.
If the items you have borrowed are located in your campus, you are expected to retrieve them yourself.
How to connect to the WI-FI
If your home institution is affiliated to Eduoram Project you can connect to the Eduroam wireless service at University of Vigo. Your login credentials and settings will be the same you have in your home institution.
The configuration of Eurodam needs to be done before the students leave their home institution.
How to use/start using the electronic resources
The University library is subscribed to a large collection of e-books, e-journals, databases, etc. to which students have full access.
Students can learn how to use the electronic resources of the University library with this tutorial.
