IEB Library

The IEB Library is considered today one of the richest in Brazilian subjects, approaching 250 thousand volumes, including books, offprint documents, theses, periodicals and sheet music. Among the rarities, there are works of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, as well as many with dedication and sets of notes on edges. Its origin goes back to the famous Brasiliana collection by Brazilian historian Yan de Almeida Prado, bought by Brazilian university USP (University of São Paulo) in 1962. Since then, by purchase or donation, the Library has been receiving new collections, kept in its unit, with their former owners’ names.

The Library also has a General Collection, consisting of donations, exchanges and purchases. Also deserving highlight is the set of rare magazines.

The collection can be accessed through Dedalus. The works scanned can be viewed in the Digital Library.
