About the Library

The Artium Library and Documentation Centre is a specialised landmark for consultation and research in the field of contemporary arts and culture. It is a free, public access space that manages an important bibliographic and documentary heritage made up of monographs, exhibition catalogues, journals and audio-visual materials, among other references. All these works are available to researchers, students, Artium staff and anybody who is interested in the different aspects of contemporary creation.

In the same way, the Library promotes various activities for the dissemination of these collections -bibliographic exhibitions, World Book Day, bookcrossing...- and for the connection between plastic arts and literature –Writing for the art, Book club...-.

The Artium Museum Library owns the first SEDIC National Award (Spanish Society for Scientific Documentation and Information) for the best contribution to innovation in libraries, documentation centres and archives of art museums.
