We will be pleased to answer any queries and requests for bibliographic information on subjects related to the library's holdings that you may have, either in person or by e-mail: email@example.com
The library of the National Museum of Anthropology forms part of the Network of Museum Libraries (BIMUS), so its collections can be found in the BIMUS unified online catalogue.
Museum libraries also have their own space in the Virtual Library of Bibliographic Heritage, which can be consulted online. The Library's antiquarian collections also form part of the Collective Catalogue of Spanish Bibliographic Heritage. The aim of this catalogue is to identify and locate the bibliographic collections belonging to Spanish libraries which, due to their antiquity, uniqueness or richness, can be considered part of Spanish Historical Heritage.
Here are some useful links to consult our online catalogue, as well as other catalogues of interest (BIMUS General Catalogue, Collective Catalogue of Spanish Bibliographic Heritage and Virtual Library of Bibliographic Heritage).
The MNA Library, with the help of the Museum's cultural mediation team, periodically schedules guided tours of the library to showcase its facilities and holdings, especially the antique collection. These activities are announced on social networks and in the Museum's program of activities.
If you cannot travel to the museum, you can request publications or copies of selected pages from another centre belonging to the network of State Museum Libraries that is nearer to you or where you are already conducting your research.
Bookings for study groups are permitted, always for a maximum of 4 people and in a time slot not exceeding 2 hours.
Can't find what you are looking for? Don't worry, in the library we offer you a desiderata form. Fill it out with the details of the work you are interested in consulting, and we will evaluate your request to proceed with its purchase and incorporation into the collection. In this way, we "build" the library together.
If you happen to be preparing for the civil servant exams for auxiliary, assistant and specialist museum staff, we update and make available on an annual basis a selection of the library's publications that can help you to prepare or complete your reading list. We have also created a new section called 'cultural mediators', which includes a bibliography to help you study for the exams for the Common Services and Senior Management Technician positions, announced in the Spanish Official Gazette (BOE) on 30 January 2019.
