A new stage for the Newspaper Library service after a phase of inventory, maintenance, dissemination and access to its collection
Lines of work
Since last year 2020, the Newspaper Library of the Documentation Center for the Environment and Territory Planning has been carrying out an important inventory, maintenance and dissemination project of its collections.
This project keeps several lines of work open in parallel: the cataloging and correction of bibliographic records of some 130 titles, the emptying of articles in the catalogue, the maintenance of the collection, its digitization (more than 16.500 scanned copies and ordered in a repository of the Center), and the selection and incorporation of new titles to the collection.
The idea stems from the need to improve user access to these materials, from the on-line catalogue until your physical consultation in the Centro, as well as to improve the presentation and conservation of the collections of the Newspaper Library.
In this last phase developed from 2020 to the present, it is worth highlighting the incorporation of new magazine titles, related to the environment and the ecological transition, which have come to fill an informational gap related to the Sustainable Development Goals in libraries. Agriculture, Livestock, Environment, Aral: sustainable city, Rural and sustainable development o Strata are some of the magazines that have come to complete an important collection of titles, including some in other languages such as English, French or Italian, and related to urban planning, architecture, housing, construction, engineering or cartography. To know the magazine collection, you can consult the Newspaper Library section.
Background and access to the document
Said collection, made up of some 150 publications in paper and/or digital format, is available to citizens for consultation and reproduction. ,, in addition to being able to request, through the mail email@example.com, the reproduction and sending of the documents of interest.
