The mission of the University Library (BUDC) is to support mainly the teaching, learning, research and integral training needs of the University's students and academic staff, but also those of the whole community. To reach this goal the Library provides and promotes access to its information resources, manages spaces, equipment and services, and collaborates in the information to knowledge transformation process. In this way, the Library adds value to the University and contributes actively to its mission at the service of society.

All this material results in an over 2 million euros expenditure from the annual budget of the Library.
