Interlibrary Loan

The Collective Catalogue of the Universities of Catalonia (CCUC) is a catalogue that can help you to find the information that is not in ELISAVA's library.

All the library areas are covered by a wireless Internet connection network.

It can be accessed with an ELISAVA username and password.

All the tables in the library have sockets where laptops can be plugged in.

How to make a bibliography

Basic Principies of description

When making a bibliography, the documents consulted should be described to form bibliographic references. The aim is to provide future access to the original documents by stating the essential data in each document in a simple yet standardised fashion.

How to cite documents


A citation is an abbreviated form of reference inserted between brackets in the text or added as a footnote, at the end of the chapter, or at the end of the entire text. It serves to identify the publication from which an issue, idea, etc., referred to in the text, has been taken, and to specify its exact location in the source publication.
