The rector of the University of Barcelona, Joan Guārdia, and the Minister of Culture of the Catalan Government, Natālia Garriga, have signed an agreement for the loan of part of the UB’s Historical Archive to the Catalan Government, which will use it for the National Archive of Catalonia. The aim of this initiative is to place this documentary heritage at the service of research and the general public, while taking care of its preservation and conservation.

The first shipment of documentation to the National Archive of Catalonia has already taken place. It consists of 1,915 archive boxes and will represent approximately 16% of all the documentation in the Historical Archive of the UB. These are mainly historical academic records. The agreement between the two entities establishes that the documentation will be temporarily deposited and that the UB will keep its ownership.
