In 1996 the Pavelló de la República Library was definitively integrated in UB CRAI and nowadays is considered one of the most important archive and library of the world about the Second Republic, Civil War, exile, Franco Regime and the Transition to democracy.
The document batches come from the collection of the Private Library Josep M. Figueras and the Centre d'Estudis Històrics Internacionals (CEHI) of the University of Barcelona. Since 1996 all the documentation that comes from CRAI is being incorporated in this set.
