A warm welcome from the staff working at Burgos University Library.
We have three libraries where you will be able to find all of the necessary resources and information, so that you can develop your learning, teaching and research activities. The University Library is formed of libraries and library service points in buildings located on two campuses:
- The General Library buildings, the Science Service Point, the Humanities and Education Service Point, and the Polytechnic Library, situated on the San Amaro Campus.
- The Polytechnic Library building on the Río Vena Campus.
We have devised a wide range of services which will enable you to integrate information resources into your scientific activities, and we have invested in the development of electronic collections and on-line services, in order to create a digital library, available 24 hours a day, that may be visited from any Internet access point.
