Information, consult and research

The Mongui Maduro Library welcomes researchers for consulting the several sources of information the library offers.
In 2018 we aim to launch the complete online catalogue of books and a selection of articles of the Antilliana collection, however a broader research is only possible by visiting the library, as some parts of the collection such as a large amount of documented periodical articles and newspaper clippings, are not digitalized or do not appear in the online catalogue but are available for consult in the library.
In order to receive faster service, we recommend you to send your research request in advance by email or by phonecall, so our staff can start collecting the available information for you, prior to your visit. (email:

As we are only a reference library, researchers are not allowed to borrow books.
Photocopying and scanning are permitted, depending on the state of the material. Very valuable documents first need to be evaluated by the staff before giving permission for photocopying or scanning.
Different rules and regulations apply for the consultation of the SNOA archives (See Special collections)
