The Institute Library

The Institute Library, founded in 1910, has more than 70,000 volumes and its holdings grow every year. The library specializes in literature, history, art and philosophy, and over time has added private collections that once belonged to important Spanish scholars such as Fernández Almagro, Casalduero, etc.

A library card is required to check out books and may be requested at the library check-out desk (two photos required). Students are responsible for all materials checked out or borrowed from the library, and for their replacement if lost, damaged, or stolen while checked or used under their name.
