Checking information in the 27 Yearbooks published by the Architects’ Association of Catalonia between 1899 and 1930 is now even easier thanks to the digitization undertaken by the COAC Library's staff.

The main purpose of the digitization project, which joins others already undertaken by the Library, is to make this very interesting information, of great bibliographic value, as widely available as possible online while at the same time guaranteeing the preservation of the original documents.

The Yearbook was used to publish material for studying the past and present of architecture, with descriptions of historic monuments and new buildings. It also included useful, up-to-date information and a list of architects and project managers, new legislation, obituaries and advertising from manufacturers and industrial firms in the sector.

There is open access to the full texts of the Yearbooks in the Magazine section of the Library.
