Thematic collections cover a selection of resources on a topic on a regular basis.

These collections allow the chronological exploration of the evolution of the websites of various administrative bodies, the Twitter profiles of the main political representatives, the websites of disappeared political parties, press, radio and television headlines, gastronomic fairs and traditions of any region of Spain.

The Departments of the National Library of Spain that manage special collections also maintain their thematic collections with the online resources they deem necessary to keep as part of the legal deposit. These include the collections Library Documentation, Fine Arts and Cartography; Music and Audiovisuals; and Manuscripts, Incunabula and Rares.

In addition, we are working to set up other means of collaboration with institutions specialising in different areas of knowledge through the Network of Spanish University Libraries (Red de Bibliotecas Universitarias y Científicas Españolas - REBIUN).

If you know of any website of interest that is not archived in these collections or would like to suggest a new thematic collection, please contact us at
