  • Verify that there are copies available for request and choose the library where you want to pick up the document.


When you receive the email reminding you to return the books two days before the end of the loan period, you will be able to renew it from My account.

Yes. But before you do so, check that you do not have any material from the UdG with the loan period expired. You can then go to the library where the document you need is and arrange the loan by showing your UdG card.

The university libraries participating in the PUC are UB, UAB, UPC, UPF, UdG, UdL, URV, UOC, URL, UVIC-UCC, TecnoCampus and Biblioteca de Catalunya.

Irrespective of how you have obtained the material, you can return it to any of the UdG’s libraries or to any library of the university to which the document belongs.

Late returns are sanctioned with suspension from the loan service for one day for each day the loaned material is returned late, and per document.
