Abstract:The Ateneu Barcelonès is a civil, private cultural association that has been a part of Spanish society and culture since 1860, having been founded with the aim of promoting dialogue and disseminating knowledge about the country's artistic, historical and intellectual heritage. Since 2005, been taking part in various digitisation projects, including particularly the Google Library Project, the Hemeroteca digital de l'Aula Màrius Torres (Aula Màrius Torres digital newspaper archive), the Biblioteca Virtual de Prensa Histórica (Virtual Library of Historical Press), the Biblioteca de Cataluña's ARCA (Catalonia Library's ARCA), the Memoria Digital de Cataluña (Digital Memory of Catalonia) and Europeana. The Almirall Project aims to be a portal that explains, contextualises and inter-relates 19th-century works, thinkers, artists and schools of thought at Barcelona's Ateneu Library, providing access to digital copies lodged at other portals. In addition, its aim is to progressively integrate, through cooperative agreements with other institutions, other catalogues pertaining to specialised social sciences libraries with published heritage. The project therefore intends to be a channel for providing information and documentation resources for specialised research in the study of 19th-century thinking, politics and culture.
