The Municipal Network of Libraries of Murcia (RMBM) has in its catalog the documentary funds of the libraries of the Hydraulic Museum Los Molinos del Río Segura, the Center for Environmental Education Resources (CREA) and the Almudí Art Library.
These are specialized libraries associated with the RMBM, from whose service the organization and dissemination of documentary and information resources is managed in order to improve their accessibility to citizens.
The Councilor for Urban Agenda and Open Government, Mercedes Bernabé, visited the Almudí Palace Center this morning, whose collection focuses on contemporary art and supporting works for analysis and study.
This library, located in the San Francisco Plan building, collects all the museum's own publications, as well as other acquisitions by purchase and exchange.
The center, under the Department of Culture and Heritage Recovery, was inaugurated in March 2019 with about 3,000 titles donated by Martín Páez, from his stage as director of the Almudí Art Center.
"The entire collection is not yet classified, since it is in the process of expansion, but a management team is installed in the room so a technician travels once a week to perform these cataloging tasks," explains Bernabé .
The RMBM has been working in it since May 2019 and there are currently 260 titles described and available for consultation in the room, from Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 1.30 pm.
The Library of the Hydraulic Museum of Los Molinos del Río Segura (Calle Molinos, 1, Murcia), also dependent on the Department of Culture and Heritage Recovery, has a documentary fund specialized in ethnography, folklore, traditional crafts, technology, molinology, engineering, hydraulic works, as well as art history, architecture and urban planning.
The description of the documentary resources in this library began in June 2008. The work was interrupted in 2017 and up to that date 486 titles had been registered.
"Last year, with the incorporation of a new librarian to the RMBM for technical process tasks, collaboration was resumed to continue the work begun and try, as far as possible, that the documents can be accessible to the user" , highlights the councilwoman.
The Environmental Education Resource Center Library (CREA) is a center dependent on the Department of Sustainable Development and Huerta.
The RMBM began working on its collection in 2018 in which some 4,000 titles were encrypted.
His specialization deals with environmental issues and encompasses the funds of three municipal services, those of CREA, Environment itself, as well as Parks and Gardens.
To this center, located in the Municipal Services Building (Abenarabi Avenue, 1), today more than 1,200 documents have been registered in the RMBM database.
The mayor explains that, at the moment, this library is in the process of cataloging and work is being done so that users can access them for consultation and home loan through a management team in their offices.
These three centers depend on the corresponding departments, but are associated with the Municipal Library Network of Murcia (RMBM) for their organization and cataloging.
This service depends on the Department of Urban Agenda and Open Government.
The collective catalog of the RMBM can be consulted 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at the link shown below: http://www.redbiblioteca.carm.es/RedBiblioteca/faces/catalogo_biblioteca-murcia-rmbm.
