Visit to Biblioteca de Catalunya 31th March

By Mikael Johansson

At our first of the two-day midterm meeting in Barcelona we made a visit to Biblioteca de Catalunya http://www.bnc.cat/eng

We got a very interesting presentation of the work with their audiovisual collection and the history of this collections. Also we got example of the use of audiovisual material as a source for studies.

For those that are interested in their collection please take a look at http://www.bnc.cat/eng/Collections/Sound-and-audiovisual

After the presentation we got a guided tour at the beautiful building, that originally was used as a hospital for a very long time.

The first stone for the hospital was laid in 1401 and since 1939 Biblioteca de Catalunya been located at this building. Some of the interior from the time as a hospital is saved and gives an historical example of how it looked.
