Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia Extends Partnership With BiblioLabs, Digital Collection Now Available Worldwide

From a BiblioLabs Announcement:

The Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia (BNC) is extending its partnership with BiblioLabs to offer digitized historical content to libraries worldwide.

The BNC’s digital content will be available for libraries to access via the Spanish Language Module on BiblioBoard Library.


BiblioBoard Library contains more than 200 thematic Anthologies. In addition, libraries can subscribe to content modules created by partner institutions like the British Library, and now, the Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia.

The Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia originally partnered with BiblioLabs in 2012 to create Colección Samper Ortega, a free iPad app. Released in October of 2012, the app includes more than 50 essays, short stories, novels and historical documents written by four Colombian authors of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, all published by Colombian Publisher, Minerva.

Available for free, the Colección Samper Ortega can be downloaded in the App Store.

BiblioLabs also partners with the British Library, San Diego Air & Space Museum, ProQuest, and Gale Cengage.
