Web Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC)
Just like their counterparts in the residential campuses, UPOU students and faculty can access the library’s Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) via the Integrated Library Management System software provided by the UP System.
Virtual Reference Service
Through the Virtual Reference Service (Via Email) faculty and students may request for books or book chapters, thesis abstracts, and full text articles, from the UPOU Library via email.
The Library sends printed books to requesting UPOU students via courier. The same books are sent back to the library through the same courier service.
The UPOU library prepares subject and author bibliographies on specific topics upon request.
Referral Services and Intra/Inter-library Loan
In extreme cases where our students and faculty members would like to borrow materials from libraries outside the college and university, the College librarian usually obtains such materials through an intra/inter-library loan. The College librarian also writes letters for its students and faculty members so that they may be able to use the resources and facilities of libraries outside the UP System Library.
Reader’s Assistance Services
The UPOU library provides library orientation to new students as well as walk-in researchers who request such services. The staff also answers queries concerning the client’s current information needs. Upon request, the staff are able to advise students on materials that they could use for their study and research.
