In November 2011, the Unesco's General Conference proclaimed April 30 International Jazz Day. In this second year of International Jazz Day, the University Library of Philosophy and Letters and the Media Library have made a selection of materials for initiation or discovery of this great music, a great unknown for a wide sector of the public. We have assembled a selection of books, films and music where jazzis shown in different formats, from the hands of the great masters, Ashley Kan, Ken Burns, Philip J. Gleason, Bertrand Tavernier, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, etc. You can browse through our collection or submerge yourself in the sea of aural thoughts that form jazz. And, of course, we support the reasons that Unesco sets out to give jazz the universal recognition that it deserves.
We invite you to enjoy this world heritage, and hope that you enjoy the shows available in the entrance hall of the General Library building from April 29 to May 3. Don't forget that there is more material available on the shelves of the Library of Philosophy and Letters and in the Media Library.

Maker of words and theories, bridges that pass the imagination from one bank to another reality. From lived to dreamed and then to the possible... to the future. In these terms you could re-read the thinker, writer and economist José Luis Sampedro.
The University Library joins the activities that the Vice-Rectorate of culture, sports and language policy of the University of Alicante has designed to commemorate 50 years of the novel "Hopscotch" (1963-2013). As a tribute to Julio Cortázar, the library of philosophy and letters exposed an exhibition of the works of this writer that occupies very prominently in contemporary literature. Bibliographic displays will be visit on the second floor of the library from April 22 to May 3, 2013.

The library of the University of Alicante evaluates the Mendeley Library Manager
The University Library offers its users the possibility to install and start using the bibliographic Manager Mendeley, which has been evaluated over the last three months.
Mendeley combines a desktop application that allows you to manage bibliographic references as well as PDF documents (available for Windows, Mac and Linux), and with the web version, a social network for researchers.
