The UGR has a total of 21 libraries which are spread out across the city, meaning that a comfortable study environment is always close to you. Many of the library buildings date back as far back as the 16th century and they therefore form an integral part of the city’s architectural and cultural heritage. The library housed in the magnificent Hospital Real building, for instance, was constructed at the behest of the Catholic Monarchs, and stands as an architectural masterpiece in its own right.

A wealth of diverse resources

The resources available at the university libraries are extensive and are constantly being updated. New publications and editorials are acquired on a daily basis. The central university archive also provides invaluable resources for students and lecturers alike.

Electronic Resources

A vast range of electronic resources have also been made available to students at the UGR. These diverse resources range from databases, electronic journals and magazines to e-books, dictionaries, and encyclopaedias. These online collections are constantly growing as the university makes new acquisitions.

Courses and Workshops

Additionally, the library offers introductory courses to new users on how to use the library resources most effectively, as well as running an array of workshops every month designed to support academic research (for instance on thesis research, methodology, and writing)

The University of Granada Publishing House

The UGR Press also provides an invaluable service to the university community. Its primary objectives are to publish research, aid the learning process, disseminate scientific knowledge, and share the rich historical and bibliographical heritage of the University of Granada.
