The interlibrary document lending and supply service of the MNAC Library is directed at all Spanish libraries requesting an original document or part of a document photocopied from our collection for purposes of research.

In addition, the Library offers internal users the possibility of obtaining documents from other libraries.

Terms for lending from our collection to other libraries

- Duration of loan is 30 days from the date of issue of the item.
- A maximum of three items will be issued per request.
- The requesting library will take responsibility for keeping borrowed documents in good condition and returning them suitably packaged within the established time.
- Borrowed documents may not leave the requesting library.
- Any documents not returned due to loss or theft or returned damaged, must be replaced by the borrower by other specimens of the same edition.
