As bibliotecas sem muros: a polissemia de um conceito e suas práticas

Translated title of the contribution: Library without walls: concepts and practices

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article seeks to relate the different uses of the term “library without walls” in distinct ter­ritories, temporalities, and intentionalities, such as in editorial collections in 17th century France and in the shaping of readers in the 19th century Argentinian pampas or in the Portuguese middle-class of the 1800s. Based on this idea of “libraries without walls,” whether in the form of books, collections, or practices, some demonstrative examples are discussed in which “how to read” or “what to read” may establish or modify actual library projects.
