Lemma 69.9.1. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $X$ be a quasi-compact and quasi-separated algebraic space over $S$. Every quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module is a filtered colimit of finitely presented $\mathcal{O}_ X$-modules.

Proof. We may view $X$ as an algebraic space over $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(\mathbf{Z})$, see Spaces, Definition 64.16.2 and Properties of Spaces, Definition 65.3.1. Thus we may apply Proposition 69.8.1 and write $X = \mathop{\mathrm{lim}}\nolimits X_ i$ with $X_ i$ of finite presentation over $\mathbf{Z}$. Thus $X_ i$ is a Noetherian algebraic space, see Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 66.28.6. The morphism $X \to X_ i$ is affine, see Lemma 69.4.1. Conclusion by Cohomology of Spaces, Lemma 68.15.2. $\square$
