PUC or library consortium loans

Important notice:

The consortium loan (PUC) will remain closed until further notice for technical reasons.

If you have documents on loan from other universities, you can return them to any CRAI Library at the UB or to any library of the institution to which the document you have on loan belongs.

Sorry for any inconvenience.


PUC is a free service enabling users at member institutions to request and borrow materials from other libraries in the Consortium of University Services of Catalonia (CSUC). 


It is aimed at the following members of the UB community, with the following conditions: 


User profiles
Number of documents
Number of renewals
Loan duration

Bachelor’s degree students, EHEA undergraduates and accredited Alumni UB

Postgraduate students, master's degree and doctoral students

Teaching and research staff

Administrative and service staff





The maximum number of documents includes items that the user has requested or borrowed through the PUC, and items that are currently being returned to their original institution (the returns process is completed only once a document has reached its home institution). 


Users can request documents online or in situ, at the library where they are held. To use this service, you must:

 Be registered in the database of users of the CRAI loan service.

 Have no overdue items.

 Not be temporarily blocked from using the loans service as a penalization for a late return or other problem.


PUC online

Authorized UB users can request documents from other institutions in the CSUC directly through the University Union Catalog of Catalonia (CCUC). 

PUC in situ

Authorized UB users can borrow items directly from any of the libraries in the CSUC. They must use their UB Card to identify themselves and can then take out documents on loan. Two documents can be taken out on loan at the same time for a 10-day period.


For more information, consult the FAQs on PUC loans or contact us via the User Support Service (S@U).
