The CRAI starts the new academic year with new features in its access and services, aiming to return to normality with some improvements, as long as the health situation allows.

Regarding the library access, from September 20, it is no longer necessary to book a study space, but you must come with your URV card since access is limited to URV Community Members. In order to continue taking protective measures, all areas and workplaces have been enabled and their capacity has been limited. In addition, hydroalcoholic hand cleaning gel and self-cleaning kits for computers are available to users.

In addition, most services have been resumed, such as the laptop loan and equipment service. All other unavailable services will be gradually resumed as well.

Besides, the CRAI releases a new website, which facilitates access to all CRAI resources and services. Also, some of the Borrowing Rules and Conditions have been updated, such as the management of overdue items. In this line, My account service, which is a virtual tool that allows users to manage all loans, has been resumed. Finally, users can now request documents that are not in the URV through the Interlibrary loan. The PUC (consortium loan service) is temporarily unavailable to request items, but you can return PUC documents to the CRAI.

Regarding information resources, the CRAI has launched a new Search engine, which incorporates an improved integrated search and new features.

Finally, all CRAI virtual resources and services, accessible anywhere through The CRAI at home, are 24/7 available from any device connected to the Internet.
