Euclides da Cunha Library

UNIGRANRIO is the largest educational institution in the Baixada Fluminense region (Metropolitan area of Rio de Janeiro), with students coming from different municipalities. Therefore, due to the educational, scientific and social relevance of the University in the region, the Euclides da Cunha Library, located on the Program Campus, is one of the largest libraries in the Baixada Fluminense.

Currently, the Library's collection corresponds to 57,719 titles, of which 138,417 are copies. In the library's existing laboratory, 28 (twenty-eight) computers with access to the UP TO DATE system are available to the public. The space has the following human resources: 2 librarians, 1 assistant, 5 assistants and two young apprentices.

Inaugurated in 1972, the Library is open from Monday to Saturday. It has a Library Coordination Center (NCB), composed of 10 individual libraries, a Document Conservation and Restoration Unit (UCORE) and a Computer Laboratory. It occupies 2,000 m2, encompassing the reception, a collection hall, reading rooms, group study rooms, individual study booths and hall for exhibitions and events.

The Library has access to the Theses and Dissertations Base (BDTD), allowing data sharing with the Brazilian Library of Theses and Dissertations and with the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (international database). Finally, there is access to the SCIELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online) database, which covers a selected collection of Brazilian scientific journals. UNIGRANRIO has franchised access to the Scopus and Science Direct databases through the CAPES Journal´s Portal, which covers central publications on Biological and Health Sciences.

The CAPES Journal´s Portal is fully available to UNIGRANRIO professors, students and teaching researchers, offering access to the full texts of selected articles from international and national magazines. Currently, professors and students of Postgraduate programs have remote access to CAPES journals, in addition to the intense use of the UP TO DATE system – a database widely used by health academics, which provides articles written by renowned authorities on each topic and that facilitate the quick and effective updating of these professionals.

In addition to the extensive collection of the Library, users have Wi-Fi access in the reading rooms to different databases, such as:
