About us

We welcome you to the library of the Nautical Faculty of Barcelona

Library of the Barcelona School of Nautical Studies FNB

The Barcelona Faculty of Nautical Library (FNB) is located in a historic building built in 1932. The school was created in 1769, being the oldest teaching center in the UPC. Our mission is to support students, teachers and administrative and service staff in their teaching and research through specialized resources and services in the maritime and nautical sector. The library also has a historical collection of great value, part of which has been digitized and is accessible on the Fons Antic de la UPC .

Come and meet us!
