Guidelines

Every time you visit the library, carry the proper identification ID or a valid ID for Non-UP researchers (see Access Requirements below). ID registration is available at the Information Section at the ground level of the College of Science Library. If a student does not have or has lost their ID, the library may issue a temporary ID upon presentation of his/her Form 5 and receipt from the Registrar that he has paid for his/her ID.

Students must establish a UP Gmail account at the start of the semester through the UP Computer Center, which is located at the UP Alumni Engineers Building, Magsaysay St., UP Diliman, near the Engineering Sundial. Any registered student, faculty, or staff member with a registered ID and an active UP Gmail account may borrow circulating books from any UP library, subject to the policy and regulations of the library. If a student/faculty/staff member has a late loan or loans, he may be denied borrowing another item until he returns the book(s) and pays the fine(s), even if his total costs are less than the maximum (5 or 10) allowed.

Explore our Collections

You can find the items you need by using our OPAC stations, which are located throughout the library. TUKLAS is a discovery search tool that contains all of the UPD libraries’ collections for books, digital records, academic journals, newspapers, magazines, and more in one interface. You can freely peruse our collection in the General Stacks, Reserve, Reference, and Filipiniana Sections through our Open-Shelves policy. The College of Science library has its own collection of theses and dissertations, Philippine journal articles, technical reports, and newspaper clippings, all of which are indexed in ABCD, our in-house database. All further collections, such as electronic books and journals, can be obtained on the website of the UP Main Library at www.mainlib.upd.edu.ph.
