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 Rebiun, CISUG (formerly Bugalicia Consortium), Dialnet and UNICi2.
