Information about the library

Who can use the library?

Libraries are a service offered by the University of Valladolid, for members of the University community and for those who have been duly authorized, according to the BUVa regulations.

It is essential to possess a university card or a university library card, which is personal and non-transferable, in order to use the services offered by the Library.

The University Card grants you access to this library and to other UVa libraries.

Some services will require you to identify yourself as a BUVa user, through a PIN code. For more information, go to the tab “The Library from outside the campus.”
