Its origins date from the sale of church lands in the 19th century which required the creation of a series of institutions to safeguard the bibliographic collections of the convents and monasteries affected.

The most valuable possession in the library is its collection of antique works from the monastery of Santa María de Huerta at the University of Santa Catalina in El Burgo de Osma. It comprises 34 manuscripts, 33 incunabula and almost 6,000 books from the 16th to 18th centuries. Other interesting pieces in the collection are the section on monographs, pamphlets and local and regional periodicals dating from the 19th century to the present day.

Essential works


The library's collections are included in the Collective Catalogue of Spanish Bibliographic Heritage, created for the purpose of describing and locating books and other bibliographic items held in libraries and Spanish institutions which, for reason of their antiquity, singularity or value, form part of Spain's Historic Heritage.
