How to access the holdings in this room

Currently it is only possible to access the BNE reading rooms with an appointment.

To consult the documents of any room, you must request the documents that you would like to view in advance. Once a request has been received, the BNE will contact the applicant to arrange the time of the visit.

The following types of documents cannot be requested in advance: drawings, engravings, photographs, ephemera, maps and plans. These items must be requested directly in the Room.

Exceptionally, justified requests made in advance for the original graphic and cartographic material (maps and plans, engravings, drawings, photographs and ephemera) may be considered. These requests should be sent to the Department of Fine Arts and Cartography at

Advance requests for posters kept at the Alcalá Headquarters (AHC/ and AHCC/ call numbers) will be made from the Library’s own online catalogue.

To consult the free access collections or to use the public computers, you must email the room where the archive is held.
