Most of the UFP’s collection is in open access and is organized by subjects, following the Universal Decimal Classification (UDC).

Each Library has different types of materials, according to study and research interests of the Faculties it serves.

The development of the collection was carried out based on 3 processes: a Purchase, a Swap and an Offer / Donation.

By Purchase

The acquisition is based on the bibliographic recommendations provided in the curricular programs of each discipline. 

The proposal of new titles (up to 3 references / discipline) is the responsibility of the documents and must be made through the appropriate form. 

When selecting materials, they must not use works with publication data longer than 5 years.

By Exchange

The Library maintains an exchange system with various institutions. Permission may be executed at the request of documents, external entities or the Library itself.
