Library and Archive

Description

The Library and Archive supports research, teaching and study, providing access to the necessary information resources from this university or elsewhere. The different service points serve the entire University community and are available in eight faculty or school libraries. There are also specialised documentation centres. To use many of the services offered by the UAM libraries, a university card is required, identifying members of our community.

The total Library and Archive holds more than 801,000 paper books, maps and journals, 45,000 e-books, 70,000 e-journals, more than 200 databases and 160 laptop computers available for loan. It offers nearly 4,500 reading room places and its Study Room is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Much of the collection on paper is the fruit of donations received over the years.

The Library and Archive belongs to the Consortium of University Libraries of Madrid (Madroño), enabling access to the resources acquired jointly with these libraries. It is also a member of Rebiun, the Spanish University library network, and other professional associations.

On 2 February 2007 the board of governors approved the Strategic Service Plan for Libraries and Archives (2006-2008) of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, which arose to meet the future needs of the adaptation of the UAM and its services to the Space for Higher Education.
