In-library laptop loans

To use the Laptop Loan Service, users will have to prove that they are members of the university community and hand in their library card or ID card.

The loan of this material is subject to the UPM's Policy on the Loan and Temporary Use of Non-Bibliographical Resources (in Spanish). These regulations state that:

  1. Users of this service shall have to read and fill in the form that they will be given for this purpose at the Library's customer service counter.
  2. The equipment shall be used exclusively for academic purposes: study, research or teaching activities and assignments.
  3. Laptops shall be used on the Library premises save in the case of a reasoned exception.
  4. Maximum loan time shall be five hours during the Library Service's opening times. In any case, the laptop shall be returned to Library staff one hour before the Library closes.
  5. The applicant is responsible for the laptop’s safekeeping and proper use.

Users are not allowed to manipulate either the hardware or software. The laptop should be returned in exactly the same condition as it was loaned to the user.

To connect to the UPM's WiFi network, the user shall have to:

  1. Sit within the areas inside the Library that have network coverage.
  2. Have a university e-mail address: @upm.es or @alumnos.upm.es
  3. Open the browser and enter the requested data (user name + password). To do this:

A USB device or the CD recorder drive or system tools can be used to save documents.

In no case should the laptop's configuration be changed.

Loan of graphing calculators

The Library provides a five-hour graphing calculator loan service.

eBook loans

As part of the UPM Library's Not Only Technical campaign to encourage reading, we have a number of electronic reading devices that users can borrow for at most a fortnight.

These media contain over 1000 volumes of universal literature, although users can read their own material using a card or USB device.

Ask at your library.

If you already have your own reading device, you can download books from the Project Gutenberg Web Site.
