Spaces for serious study and research.

The reading areas of UP Engglib not only house book collections but also ergonomic furniture for individual users. Specially-designed reading carrels provide private, personal spaces for study, with ample lighting and spacing to provide an excellent reading experience.

OPAC Stations

Self-Check In/Out Kiosks

To provide a more convenient way of borrowing and returning books, users may use theSelf Check In/Out kiosks at the Circulation section.


UP Engglib also has computers and mobile devices dedicated solely for browsing electronic resources. Computers were reconfigured as eReaders where the eGateway Portal can be freely accessed. Users can also borrow iPads and Kindles and enjoy reading e-books from our various online database providers, browse our recommended technology websites, or read magazines and newspapers online, all at their fingertips! eReaders are available for free to all users of Engglib.

Charging Stations

Certain areas dedicated as charging stations were also made available for UP Engglib users. Users can charge their gadgets and laptops using the strategically-placed electrical outlets available all over the library. It may be a simple service, and yet, can mean so much to those who are using their own devices for their research and studies.
