Programs and Services

The first activity of the CBUC was to create the University Union Catalogue of Catalonia (CCUC). Shortly afterwards, the Consortium considered that it would be feasible and beneficial to organize an interlibrary loan program.

The results of the first programs encouraged to initiate new ones (joint purchase of equipment, training, benchmarking, evaluation...) and to draw up the Digital Library of Catalonia (which includes both the set of electronic information jointly licensed by the members of the CBUC and the open access repositories containing documentation generated by the member institutions of the Consortium).

The last program created is the GEPA (a cooperative store to preserve and to conserve the documents with low use).
