The Association of Booksellers of Catalonia and the Faculty of Library and Information Science of the University of Barcelona have been working together in developing a professional education and training program addressed to booksellers and other people wishing to be employed in the world of bookselling.


The first step of this co-operation was the creation of the School of Bookselling through an agreement signed by the Rector of the University of Barcelona and the President of the Booksellers Association on 14 May 2012.


Postgraduate Diploma on Bookselling

As its first training initiative the School of Bookselling offers a postgraduate degree on Bookselling, which is addressed to anyone with a university diploma and those who, regardless of their earlier training, have a professional interest in the area of ​ bookselling.

This postgraduate program, the first in Spain with the intention of continuity and a result of  co-operation between the private sector and the university, is possible thanks to the Active Bookshop Program of the ICEC (Catalan Institute of Cultural Companies) at the Department of Culture of the Catalonian Government.

This degree provides knowledge related to the business of bookshops, such as legal framework, administrative and accounting issues, technological aspects of production, distribution and book circulation (both printed and digital), the economic sector and business and marketing strategies, management of bookshops regarding stocks, display techniques and customer care, as well as all the pertinent bibliographic information resources and their location.

In short, the degree aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to be able to incorporate themselves into the workplace of all types of bookstore-related businesses.
