The library of the National Museum of Anthropology houses a large and important bibliographic and documentary collection on anthropology - understood as the study of human beings in general - and on the cultural heritage of the five continents.
It consists of more than 19,000 volumes, including monographs and pamphlets, and 567 journal titles, mostly periodicals specialising in anthropology. These include both historical journals and a selection of the most important anthropology journals published around the world today. It also includes an important section with studies and journals on museum studies. In addition, our Rare Books collection is particularly valuable.
The Library provides bibliographic information and documentation services to Museum staff, as well as to researchers, professionals, undergraduate and master's degree students, and the general public.
Located on the second floor of the Museum, it has a reading room with 12 seats. It also has a digital catalogue that can be consulted on site and via the Internet.
