OUR LIBRARY

The primary function of the University of Gibraltar’s library is to support academic enquiry through the provision of information.  Our library therefore supports students, staff and researchers by providing a physical space and resources to be able to carry out their studies.

WHAT FACILITIES DO WE PROVIDE?

The library holds a mix of both hardcopy and electronic resources to suit the individual user’s needs. These include internet-ready pc terminals as well as searchable electronic databases of the library’s holdings. There are also facilities for photocopying (for a small fee) as well as areas to study.

CAN I BORROW BOOKS?

The University Library is in the main a reference library, but University students, staff and Associate researchers can borrow books.

WHEN CAN I VISIT THE LIBRARY?

Currently, our opening hours are from 8:00am – 3:30pm Wednesdays and Thursdays. However, access to pcs and the study areas is available between 9:30am and 6:00pm Monday to Friday.

I AM STUDYING AT ANOTHER UNIVERSITY. CAN I USE THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY?

Yes, if you can show evidence of your student status you will have access to use the library during opening hours. However, you will need to sign in and out at the University reception and you will not be able to borrow books.

THE GIBRALTAR REPOSITORY

The University of Gibraltar will also house the new Gibraltar Repository that will be open to the public and available for consultation by local and overseas scholars. This Repository is a collection of Gibraltar-related material that is currently being collated and which will eventually represent the sum total of published material on Gibraltar or by Gibraltarians, making it a truly unique resource.

Various constituent parts of this Repository are held within the collections of a number of Gibraltar-based institutions and Associate Campuses who together form the Gibraltar Libraries Forum.

WHAT IF I NEED HELP?

Our University Librarian can be contacted on library@unigib.edu.gi, and on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 8:00am and 3:30pm on 20071000 Ext. 816.
