Can I borrow journals or articles from another Blanquerna library?
Journals cannot be borrowed in all the centres. However, by filling in the interlibrary borrowing form, you can ask for photocopies of journal articles from another centre. In 24 hours, you will have the photocopies at your disposal at the library. We recommend, though, that you consult online journals first, as the article that you are interested in may be found online.

You can consult the full regulations in the corresponding section in Borrowing URL documents.
