How to register

How to apply for loans

Once you have registered, go to the library you are interested in using. You can contact the library that has the document you are interested in by email beforehand.

We recommend consulting the library's opening hours and catalogs, as well as the copies excluded from the loan, before the visit. Library catalogs are accessible from Trobes. In the search box, by clicking on the magnifying glass, the option "Search BUVAL" can be chosen as a new profile. The search allows you to retrieve results for materials from the five university libraries, which can then be filtered by institution.

The user agrees to return the loans within the indicated period and in the library of the borrowing university or in any BUVAL library

The users can consult in their "account" of the cataleg their loans broken down by universities. They can filter by both active loans and loan history.

They have to identify themselves in the catalog of their University of origin as they usually do.

Users can renew their loans at other universities from the catalog, consider that the loan conditions are not the same in their home University as in the rest.


This service is free.
