To request a loan or photocopy of any text within URL’s libraries, interested parties should contact the library containing said document directly based on the information that appears in our catalogue.

Service scope and operation

  • The library loan service allows URL students, faculty and PAS administrative and service staff to check-out items from any URL library for a limited period of time.
  • Both ESDI (affiliated centre) users and library are excluded from this service.
  • Some documents within the different libraries are restricted to users from those same centres. Those documents are differentiated in the catalogue as Només xxx (“Only xxx”) in the Tipus de préstec (Type of loan) field where “xxx” is the specific centre’s acronym, for example, “Només IQS”, “Només ESADE”, etc.
  • The documents identified in the catalogue as excluded from loans can only be consulted in the respective library’s reading room.
  • For those interested in requesting a loan of a book from a library other than their own centre’s library, they can go directly to the library where the document is located or request that we deliver it to their library through the internal messenger service. Delivery can take between 3 to 8 days.
