Library

The University Library offers a wide set of information resources, facilities and services to support learning, teaching and research-oriented activities.

The University Library is accessible in the three campus through a network of eleven libraries coordinated by the central library of the University campus of Vigo. It is part of the Vice-chancellorship of Research. 

Although mainly targeted at members of the university community, the library allows access to people outside the University of Vigo as external users.

If you are a new or foreign student and you would like to know how to take your first steps in the library, check our Guide for newly enrolled students or the Guide for international students (in English).

The library is managed with a quality management system certified according to ISO 9001 standard. Likewise, the library is part of cooperative environments such as CRUE-Rebiun, the Consorcio BugaliciaDialnet and UNICi2.

With the start of the new academic year, and in the current framework created by the Covid-19, from 7th September the University Library will open its doors to the public although with some limitations derived from the application of safety and hygiene measures.  From that date, the eleven libraries will allow the use of their rooms and study seats in accordance with the Instructions for reopening the library study rooms (in Galician) and, for borrow books, in accordance with the Borrowing books instructions (in Galician).  Information about library opening hours and maximum capacity allowed can be found in the section "Libraries" on our website.
