PEDRAZA GRACIA, Manuel José. Reflections on historical and heritage libraries: The emerging paradigm among information service centers. Investig. bibl [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.64, pp.33-50. ISSN 2448-8321.

The paper analyzes the special features of heritage libraries that make them distinct from other library centers. Rare books are examined as documents and heritage objects, as well as reservoirs of useful information for researchers. The linkage between document archives and heritage libraries is also studied. Finally, the main functions of heritage libraries are described in terms of their impact on institutional activities and agenda.
