Business annual reports

Col·leccions Especials
Social Sciences Library

Description of the collection:

The collection of annual reports is part of the Social Sciences Library and is made up of about 1000 periodicals, which are reports or reports that summarize the main data of the internal activity of an entity throughout the year corresponding

This collection began as of 1980. First there was a previous selection of the companies that could be of interest to our researchers for later studies. The main objective was to preserve this internal documentation that only the same companies kept while they existed. The incorporation of new titles has always been made by donation from the companies that sent us their documentation.

Initially the fund was all in paper support and later incorporated electronic media (especially CD-ROM) in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat). And now the publication of this information on the Internet has led us to create a collection of annual reports on our DDD digital repository.

In addition to annual general reports, the business reports collection also includes annual reports of sustainability, corporate social responsibility, environmental and related issues.
