Préstamo de contenidos

Ubik provides for the possibility of taking the content, equipment or toys available in its library out of its physical space, and so it is offering a content loan service. The loan service is free of charge, but it is necessary to be a member of the library: Tabakalera Card.  


Notes on services during the COVID-19 pandemic:


-Users must hold a Tabakalera Card. In principle, no new cards will be issued.

-Library content will be loaned under the standard conditions: 15 items for 30 days.

-Items must be reserved in advance. There are three ways of doing this:

1) By phone: +34 943 47 50 50

2) By email: Send your message to indicating which items you wish to borrow and when you will collect them.

3) Via the catalogue: Log in/register with your user details to reserve your items. We will prepare your items for collection in Ubik. You must present your user card.

Returning your items: Deposit the items in the box at the Nestor Basterretxea entrance to Tabakalera or in Ubik on the second floor.

Postal loans: We are going to launch a new service for Tabakalera Card holders resident in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country who are not visiting Ubik at this time. Items should be reserved by phone or email. The items will then be sent out for free by post. Items may be borrowed for 30 days. A maximum of 15 items can be borrowed at any one time. These should be returned to the library by depositing them in the box at the entrance to Tabakalera or in Ubik (items can be returned by someone other than the user). Items can be returned by post if the user is unable to physically come to Ubik. The return postage costs shall be met by the user.

Loan of devices and games is suspended.

Return of devices: Devices borrowed prior to the library’s closure on March 13th can be returned to the library staff at the Ubik reception desk.




Content loan

The content loan service offers a chance to take out the journals/magazines, video games, films, books, discs, etc. from the Tabakalera Creation Library and enjoy them away from the Ubik premises. In order to promote citizen autonomy, individuals may independently borrow documents and return them using the automatic lending machines located at the library entrance. 

Ordinary members can borrow up to 15 documents per month and there is no need whatsoever for them to be in the same medium. If the content of interest has been borrowed by someone else, there is also a possibility of reserving it.

Returning material

Remember that failure to observe the deadlines for returning material is an insult to the rest of members, which you would also feel aggrieved about if someone else did it. Try to respect the return dates, please.

In addition, any delay in returning material will mean a temporary suspension of the loan service for the person responsible.


Renewal and loss of documents

Renewal of material on loan: The deadlines for the return of documents set by Ubik are sufficiently long for members to be able to enjoy documents. That is why there is no possibility of renewal.

Reservation policy: If you are interested in a document that is currently out on loan to someone else, Ubik offers you the opportunity to reserve it. In all cases, the reservation period will be three days. After that, the reservation will be cancelled and the material will be available to anyone interested in it. 

Any user type can reserve as many documents as they can take out on loan.


In the event of loss... 

If a document is lost, the responsible person will have to replace it with one the same at Ubik. If discontinued, Ubik will select a document of interest with the same price, and the member will be responsible for purchasing this document.

Until resolving this problem, the member will be suspended from taking any other documents out on loan.


Resource Loan Service (Suspended)

The library encourages learning, creating and enjoying, so the resources offered in the library space are designed to enable these actions to take place. What is more, members wishing to pursue their own creative development outside Ubik can use the resource loan service.

Games Loan (Suspended)

We defend the position that the themes or areas developed in the library can also be worked on through games and toys. So various games available in the library can be borrowed. 

Apart from working on Ubik’s theme areas, co-operative games and ones that help to develop the imagination and creativity are available through this service.
