Centre for Documentation and Studies seen from within | FCB ARCHIVE

The CDiE-FCB has a historic and administrative archive that includes a major graphic archive, a library specialised in sports and essentially FC Barcelona and finally, a newspaper archive that contains the main publications in the Barça field.

These three areas serve for the CDiE-FCB to be able to operate as an information and reference centre about the Club and at the same time to provide guidance with any research into the organisation.

It also has a multimedia archive, a new work tool for cataloging all the images that are generated by the Club. The final aim of this project is to safeguard the conservations of this material as well as ptimising its distribution.

In operation since 1994

The CDiE-FCB has been open since 20 October 1994, and accepts donations of photographs, books, newspapers, magazines and documents that can complement its archives and is committed to their conservation and custody. There is no lending service, but photocopies can be made.

Although it is located in the Club Museum, in the Camp Nou grandstand, the CDiE–FCB is not considered part of the museum, but is instead an area for consultation and study, so visitors to the Museum cannot enter unless they have reason to use its services.

The Centre can only be accessed via the entrance to the FC Barcelona Museum (next to the club store) and the staff must be informed that a visitor wishes to use the services.
