The rector of the UB, Joan Elias; the president of the Mir-Puig Private Foundation, Jordi Segarra, and the president of the Board of Trustees of the UB, Joan Corminas, signed the collaboration agreement through which the foundation commits to defray the costs of the improvement and adaptation works on the facilities of the Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library.

Located at the Historical Building of the University, the Rare Book and Manuscript Library guards a rich archive of manuscripts, incunabula and prints from 1501 to 1820, largely coming from files from convent libraries of Barcelona, which were put there due the confiscation laws of ecclesiastical assets in 1835. The damage over the years makes this adaptation necessary to guarantee an optimal preservation of this unique bibliographic fund.

This work will improve the air conditioning and ventilation, and will go over the whole guarded bibliographical fund in the six floors of the Historical Building: two ground floors of the Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library, as well as three upper floors, one with heritage fund, in the Philology CRAI Library. The Mir-Puig Private Foundation will carry out this work and will take over the cost of it, as well as the maintenance of the facilities during the first year. This work is expected to start soon and will last about three months.

The Mir-Puig Private Foundation is an entity with a wide philanthropic activity, and one of its main objectives is social and cultural promotion. This agreement has been set with the collaboration of the Board of Trustees of the UB.
