The National Newspaper Archive, the digital periodicals library of the Biblioteca Nacional, promotes and provides public access to archives as part of Spain's bibliographical heritage kept at the National Library.
The Hemeroteca was founded in March 2007 to provide public access to the digitised versions of Spain's historical periodical publications kept at the library, with an initial collection comprising 143 press titles and magazines. The guiding criteria for this collection were to select newspapers and magazines representative of their period, which reflect the thematic wealth of Spain's periodical editions, and for which complete collections exist. Visitors to the Hemeroteca will find publications related to politics, satire, humour, science, religion, illustration, leisure, sport, the arts, literature and much more.
This digital collection was created in order to become a leading reference for the research and consultation of the history of Spanish press. In addition to text consultation and reading, it offers information on the main digital periodical collections, thus facilitating knowledge and access to “Spain's bibliographical heritage” which has yet to be fully explored.
