Snippet: Centenary of the Biblioteca de Catalunya

(c) BNC 2014

The Biblioteca de Catalunya [(National) Library of Catalonia] recently celebrated its first century as a public institution. Its mission is to preserve the Catalan cultural heritage, so far mainly in written or printed form, and to spread the knowledge about it. Its stock contains about 3.7 M documents, not counting those that originated on the Internet, and it is headquartered at the former Hospital de la Santa Creu in Barcelona.
