Projects and partnerships

On its own initiative, the Art Library and Gulbenkian Archives carries out numerous projects and activities aimed at the treatment, conservation, study, digitization and accessibility of its collections and archives.

It also seeks to diversify and deepen collaborations and partnerships with academic institutions, research centres, museums, galleries, and other cultural agents with the special aim of promoting and intensifying the study, research, and in-depth knowledge of both these collections and associated themes, as well as their use and exploration in artistic, curatorial, and educational contexts.
