BUVAL is a consortium that brings together the five public university libraries of the Valencian Community with the aim of coordinating their activities, combining resources and sharing experiences, in order to improve efficiency in                   management processes, as well as offering more services.

The University of Valencia has participated in the Dialnet project since 2005. Currently, our libraries carry out the emptying of magazines, and the indexing of chapters of collective works and conferences published by the University. The indexing of chapters of collective works is also carried out, according to the agreed emptying criteria. At this time, the staff of the University libraries is responsible for the current and retrospective dumping in DIALNET of 170 journal titles.

DIALNET is compiled within interlibrary loan service and the service of printed magazine provision, which has led to an increase of the petitions of documents referenced in DIALNET requested to these two services. Additionally, a part of the introduced data is used as the entrance to RODERIC repository.

The main objective of UV’s participation in DIALNET is to give visibility of its own production, not only dumping magazines and collective works, but also reviewing and completing information ofr the authors included in DIALNET who are a part of the university community. Hence, in the latter years, work is being carried out to improve information related to the UV, which is available through the UV’s institutional site in DIALNET. In them, each UV authors have their own personal pager where their publications are compiled.

The current state of the project is reflected in the Dialnet Reports

  • OCLC

The Universitat de València has an interlibrary loan document supply agreement with OCLC (Online Computer Library Center). It is currently the main client for this type of loan.One OCLC initiative is WorldCat, which brings together under a single consultation interface all the bibliographic holdings available in OCLC that are located in a library and, in addition, the Open Access content present in WorldCat. It contains collections from more than 15,000 libraries in 107 countries. It is the world's largest bibliographic database.The Trobes catalogue is one of those included in WorldCat.

The Libraries and Documentation Service of the University of Valencia has been a member of the UNIRIS purchasing group since 2000. The group has the main objective of acquiring, in the best possible conditions, scientific information resources. In this sense, it also promotes the sharing, in a discreet and always respectful way of the contractual agreements of each institution, the most relevant information (uses and costs) that allows having a global vision that makes it possible to present, to the different editors and / or aggregators and producers of content and services, advantageous negotiation terms for all participating institutions.


Since 2013 the SBD (Libraries and Documentation Service) of the UV collaborates in the elaboration of authority recordings in Cantic, the Authorities Catalogue of Names and Titles of Catalonia, which is coordinated by the Library of Catalonia and in which universities and other institutions of a cultural nature which use Catalan as the official Language for the elaboration of the content of its catalogues take part.
The SBD elaborates authorities in accordance with the international regulations (AACR2, RDA, and MARC21) and the specific guidelines of the Cantic. The fact of collaborating in this project is considered strategic for the SBD since standardization is an indirect way of contributing     our authors’ standardized names in other International files of authors like VIAF (http://viaf.org/) or the CERL Thesaurus .


The UV collaborated between 2010 and 2012 in the project Europeana Regia, funded with the collaboration of the European Committee.
