Search and Diffusion

One may search for information and resources in digital form, either in the UAlg's library terminals or across the UAlg's network:

  • The UAlg's bibliographic catalogue that references all existing documents in separate databases.
  • Bibliographic search or general search: allows you to  search all documents in a single database and to confirm the availability of the document you are searching for.
  • The SAPIENTIA, institutional repository for UAlg teachers' scientific and academic publications gathering documents in digital format (theses and dissertations, articles, papers, etc.).
  • B-on portal: scientific information research through the national consortium b-on.
  • Databases: full-text databases of restricted access subscribed by UAlg's Library.
  • E-books: Search for available e-books.
  • Open Access Resources: list of open access documents selected by UAlg's Library.

Users can save or print the results of the search.

Users can ask UAlg's Library staff for help whenever is necessary.
