  • The University


The University of Barcelona (UB) was founded in 1450 and is the foremost public university in Catalonia, with the largest course offering and the largest student population. It is also the leading centre of university research in Spain and one of the most prominent research universities in Europe. The UB is a member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU) and leads the Charm-EU European University alliance.


  • The CRAI


The UB's Learning and Research Resources Centre (CRAI) offers the university community and wider society access to 16 CRAI libraries: 14 of these provide specific support for teaching, learning and research in their disciplinary areas, while the remaining two contain the university's heritage collections: the Pavelló de la República CRAI Library specialized in contemporary history (Spanish Second Republic, the Spanish Civil War and exile, the Franco regime and Spain's transition to democracy) and Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library which holds one of the largest antique collection in Spain, consisting of manuscripts, incunabula and printed books between 1501 and 1820.


The CRAI is also formed by a series of cross units, the Plant Biodiversity Resources Centre (CeDocBiV), which manages one of the largest herbariums in Spain, the Digitization Centre (CEDI), a leading national centre in its field, operating at the highest European quality levels, and an ancient book Restoration Workshop, the only facility of its type in the Catalan university library network.

  • The placement


Are you an information and documentation professional in the world of university education? Are you interested in completing a CRAI placement at the University of Barcelona?


Within the framework of the Eramus+ Staff Training Programme, the UB offers a one-week placement during which you will learn first-hand about the work of our CRAI libraries, cross units and other CRAI facilities.


We can also arrange more personalized options to suit your specific interests. This is the case of the Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library, which offers stays aimed at librarians specializing in old book collections.
