The Collection consists of 91 fonds, an extensive documentation resulting from research and singled out and general documentation. In quantitative terms, these are approximately 500 thousand documents in the Archive, 250 thousand books in the Library and 8 thousand objects in the Visual Arts Collection. The Archive is responsible for the organization of textual and audio-visual documents, while the Library deals with published works and the Visual Arts Collection brings together works of art and three-dimensional objects.

Institutional responsibility for this cultural heritage implies reflecting and developing guidelines on guarding and conserving, as well as the incorporation of new collections, aiming at the preservation of memory, production of knowledge, extroversion and the publication of the collection. In this sense we offer access to the collection through the IEB Electronic Catalog
