The Program has access to the UFES INTEGRATED LIBRARY SYSTEM (SIB / UFES), which has six units: Central Library, Sectorial Technological Library, Sectoral Library of Health Sciences, Sectorial Library of CEUNES, Sectorial Library of Agricultural Sciences and Sectorial Library from Nedtec. SIB / UFES has 263,704 copies, 115,693 of which are titles and 2,438 of periodicals.

Of these units, those of greatest interest to the Program are the Central Library and the Documentation Center (CEDOC) of the Graduate Program.

The Central Library, a supplementary body directly linked to the Rectory, is the unit that coordinates the technical procedures of all units of the SIB / UFES necessary to provide information for the activities of Teaching, Research, Extension and Administration at UFES. It has a collection of 189,125 copies and 90,499 book titles and 4208 copies and 2,952 dissertation and thesis titles.

The SIB / UFES is computerized with more than a hundred computers connected to the internet. We have actively participated in the CAPES PERIODIC PORTAL, which is an extremely valuable tool for the development of research work, particularly in Stricto Sensu Postgraduate Courses. In addition to accessing the SIB / UFES facilities, teachers and students also access the CAPES Portal from the various teaching units. In addition to this direct access within UFES facilities, professors, students, researchers and UFES employees can access the CAPES Journal Portal from outside UFES in two ways: (cf.): I - Through the Federated Academic Community (CAFe ), using the link MY SPACE in the upper right corner of the Portal page, the person uses the institutional identification of UFES, as UFES has been part of CAFe since 2011; II - Through SAR - Remote Access Service to CAPES Journal Portal, which was created in late 2008 through a partnership between the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies (PRPPG), the Data Processing Center (NPD) ) and the Central Library.

SIB / UFES is part of the following networks: PERGAMUM, BIREME, COMUT, BIBLIODATA, REBAP, REBAE, CCN, ISTEC. Among the services offered by SIB / UFES we highlight:

  • Online catalog;
  • Home loan;
  • User training;
  • Bibliographic survey;
  • Guidance and Standardization of Academic Works;
  • Bibliographic switching;
  • Reservation of the bibliography used in the courses;
  • Cataloging in Publication;
  • Web page;
  • Digital library;
  • Loan between libraries;
  • Orientation and training on the Journal Portal;
  • Publication of Dissertations and Theses in the Digital Library


Last but not least, we want to mention the UFES DIGITAL LIBRARY FOR THESES AND DISSERTATIONS (BDTD / UFES). It was created in 2006, and makes available, in full, the content of the Theses and Dissertations defended in the stricto sensu Postgraduate courses at UFES, and is integrated with the National BDTD, maintained by IBICT. This BDTD complies with CAPES Ordinance No. 13, of February 15, 2006, which requires the submission of Theses and Dissertations in printed and electronic media and its availability on the internet.
