English abstract

An important part of the buildings for new libraries in Barcelona region (province) are part of the cultural heritage. The desition to place a library in a historical building has to be based on several criteria, librarian, hisctorical, but also architectural. Depending on the type of building, and also on the library needs, ther will be the need of a deep architectural intervention, affecting the main parts of the structure of the building. And depending on the type of building and the kind of intervention needed, the result will be a good library or not. The presentation gives some ideas about how to deal with this problem, to achieve the final goal of getting a successfull library, keeping the respect for the historical heritage and using a reasonable architectural solution.
