Subcollection of Cultural events at the Library

This subcollection has been created to save and conserve the Biblioteca Nacional's oral memory through the cultural events organised there since 1973. It includes poetry recitals, lecture seasons, round tables, etc., which came to be systematically recorded in the 70's following the Library's cultural policy headed by Hipólito Escolar and Manuel Carrión.

Alt the recordings from this source are organised in the Archive under the general series "Cultural Events at the Biblioteca Nacional" which is, in turn, divided into subseries or "seasons", according to the contents. The recordings are often accompanied by graphical documentation (photographs) and written documentation (invitations, information leaflets, etc.), which is archived to form part of the Library's Spoken Word Archive.
