The Library in the World

The Art Library and Gulbenkian Archives seeks to promote its collections to a specialised public by participating, as a member, in international catalogues.

At the same time, it has been involved in digitisation projects and has made documentation available in digital format, based on concerns for conservation/preservation and the dissemination of its collections, the life and work of the Founder and the history of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
