The Episcopal Public Library of the Seminary of Barcelona joins Worldcat and the ILL

The Episcopal Public Library of Barcelona, the oldest preserved public access library in the city of Barcelona, has announced the addition of more than 124,000 bibliographic records of its catalog collections to WorldCat.

The Library has 361,000 volumes, 95 incunabula, 600 manuscripts, and 2,500 volumes from the 16th century with the oldest document dating back to the 14th century. This is one of the most important heritage libraries in Catalonia, Spain, especially in the fields of theology, the Bible, ecclesiastical sciences, history, religion, philosophy, arts, and humanities. 

With this new project, the library reaffirms its commitment to being a public service accessible to everyone. In addition, with WorldCat, the library also achieves much more visibility and is positioned as one of the bibliographic and research centers worldwide in its field.

Daniel Gil-Solés, Technical Coordinator Librarian at the Library, encourages ATLA members who use WorldCat to loan or reproduce these holdings.
