Camões, I.P. Libraries

Bibliotecas Camões, I.P.

Camões, I.P. has a vast network of libraries, including the Institute’s own library at its head-quarters in Lisbon (access subject to prior appointment) which houses the collections of the previous entities (IPAD and Instituto Camões). There are sixteen libraries available at cultural centres in several countries, predominately the Portuguese-speaking African countries (PALOP).

In order to give the public full access to the collections that exist at all the libraries throughout its network, Camões, I.P. is developing an online catalogue on the Biblionet database which allows people to view each library’s collection along with an integrated search facility of the general catalogue:
