Service Catalog

The University of Oviedo offers a simple on-line guide for students to quickly learn how to carry out certain procedures, what requirements must be completed for each and where to go to take care of it. This initiative aims to simplify things and pave the way for students through the bureaucratic paperwork, making the whole process much more efficient.

  • Access to the Catalog University Library


    PAPYRUS, the catalog of the University of Oviedo, contains the description of the publications included in the collection of the University of Oviedo: books, journals, electronic publications, etc. The catalog can be accessed from any computer connected to the Internet.

    Access to the catalog from computers connected from networks that do not belong to the University of Oviedo will only provide bibliographical references and the location of the publications. To have access to a wider range of information, it is recommended that the user access from within the network of the University or uses the services of remote access.


    Access to the catalogue is open to the University community as well as to the people outside of it. Some functions —for example, the access to userinformation, consultation of borrowed items, book reservations, etc.— are limited to University users. Likewise, the access to digital collections is limited to authorized users or those accessing from an IP address of the University of Oviedo.
