​The University of Minho has several libraries at the disposal of the academic community. The main university libraries are managed by the Documentation Services. These are the General Library in the Gualtar Campus, the U.M. Library in Guimarães, in the Azurém Campus and the Congregados Building Library. These libraries contain an important body of documents, covering all fields of knowledge. The libraries have over 700 reading and studying spaces, providing several services, such as book requests, documents, printing and self-service photocopying and scanning services. The libraries also provide referencing and training services.

Beyond the libraries managed by the Documentation Services, there are other specialised libraries, integrated in several organic units.
Through the bibliographic catalogue it is possible to research the whole body of documentation in the libraries. In the Digital Library area, it is also possible to access digital documentation.
