Introduction

The master's degree in School Libraries and the Promotion of Reading is organized jointly by the UAB and the UB.

The training it provides prepares students to manage school libraries, design centre-specific reading plans, select and use children's and youth fiction, and develop social projects that have an impact on the population's reading habits.
This master's degree is aimed particularly at primary and secondary school teachers, librarians, and documentarists, as well as cultural mediators and promotors, instructors, cultural managers, and publishing professionals.
