Josep Laporte Library

Biblioteca Josep Laporte

The Josep Laporte Library offers support to professors, researchers and students of the UAB Faculty of Medicine, and opened its doors to the public on May 2, 2000.

It was born from the merger of three medical libraries: the library of the Acadèmia de Ciències Mèdiques de Catalunya i Balears, the Library of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, and the Library of the Teaching Unit of the Hospital de Sant Pau of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
