Alicante, 25 March 2020

The University of Alicante Library offers its users a range of services available online. During the suspension of classroom-based activities at the University due to the coronavirus outbreak, and given that the Library will be closed to the public, the UA offers online access to several services. All of them are listed on the website, as well as the contacts of the different services and libraries. This service is part of an online continuation plan for both teaching and administrative activities.

These services include access to electronic resources from home, online training, information and reference services, and inter-library loan. Also, the University of Alicante Repository (RUA) and the European Data Centre (EDC) can be accessible online, as well as support services for research staff, resources offered by publishers; and general free electronic resources. 

The Library receives offers on a daily basis from publishers and information providers with free access. Any new services that may be provided will be included on this page. 

On the other hand, books that were on loan before the suspension of activities at the UA libraries cannot be returned until the on-site activity is resumed. Although our computer system has not allowed us to change the return date and avoid penalties for this reason, we will take the necessary measures to solve this problem. 

A multitude of services from home

 The BUA has a comprehensive electronic bibliography collection. Full information for home access is available from our website.

 The UA Library website offers a wide range of training courses, as well as self-learning materials, information resources and support resources for PhD degrees, for the preparation of final-year undergraduate projects and for the preparation of citations and bibliographic references, DIC courses (Digital Information Competencies), and access to the managers of bibliographic references Refworks and Mendeley

Interlibrary loan may be maintained from those libraries whose staff can work remotely from home.

The University of Alicante Repository continues to provide its regular service. The European Data Centre keeps offering its online service with bibliographic information and answering questions about the EU.

Also, support for research staff is also maintained through an e-mail account.

Several publishers and e-book portals are offering the UA Library partial or total access to their collections.

In addition, the UA library staff are working from home. For any queries, you can contact them via e-mail, suggestion box and social networks.
