Ibiza and Formentera Archaeological Museum has a highly specialized library with scientific publications in several areas, such as archaeology, history, art, ethnologic and ethnographic heritage, conservation and restoration, museology and museography.
The Library is composed of more than 26,000 computerised volumes located in the facilities belonging to Puig des Molins Monographic Museum (31, Vía Romana). Its catalogue is increased by the addition of new publications, subscriptions to magazines and collections, and also thanks to publication exchanges with universities, museums, research centres and other scientific institutions from over half the world.
In addition, the library comprises a notable specialized bibliographic collection in archaeology, specifically in the Phoenician-Punic world. There is also a wide variety of books, regular publications, catalogues and monographs on other more general aspects from the history, the heritage, the ethnology or the art in the Pityusic and Balearic islands.
This highly specialized library is oriented to researchers, historians, archaeologists or university students, upon request and following the instructions from the person in charge in the museum.
Those researchers interested in consulting this bibliographic collection, must fill in a form to gain access to each publication. This form must be sent by email o handed in at our facilities:

Due to the lack of personnel specifically assigned to the library’s management, researchers will only be granted access upon request, thus allowing the normal functioning of the institutions’ services, compliant with the rules and instructions set by Ibiza and Formentera Archaeological Museum.
