Libraries and archives

Since 1983, Soprintendenza per i beni librari e documentari della Regione Emilia-Romagna has been the technical and scientific organisation in charge of the actions and activities aimed at preserving, cataloguing, enhancing and promoting books, libraries and archives.

Sala BorsaThere are about 1.300 libraries in Emilia-Romagna, totalling 20.000.000 books and an increasing number of “other” documents.
Among them, 467 are of local authorities and, in many cases, with old and strong traditions. In addition to their books, exceeding 12 million copies, the holdings of the historical archives of the municipalities should be considered and those of the cultural institutions and centres that are linked to the regional library system by agreement. As a general rule, the policy of the Regione is to view single libraries and archives as the tiles of an integrated system that gives users access to the whole of the resources that are available in our geographical area.
