Biblioteca del Museu Memorial de l’Exili (MUME) de La Jonquera
The University of Girona and the Consortium of the Exile Memorial Museum (MUME) signed an agreement on June 20, 2020 to link the Museum’s library to the University of Girona Library.
The agreement facilitates the consultation of its bibliographic collection to members of the university community and provides for the support of the UdG Library in its cataloguing and in the digitization of its manuscript collection, as well as the transfer of documents and other objects between the two institutions and the offer of internships for UdG students.
The MUME Library collects and preserves a specialized collection of nearly 3,000 volumes, focusing on the Civil War and the republican exile.
The MUME is a space for memory, history and critical reflection. It is an interpretation center reminiscent of the exiles caused by the Civil War. Located on the same border crossing where most of the exiles fled, the MUME combines museum functions, through permanent and temporary exhibitions, with historical research and educational services.
The MUME is governed by a consortium with the participation of the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Consell Comarcal de l’Alt Empordà, the University of Girona and the Ajuntament de La Jonquera. Since 2010, the MUME has been part of the Network of Memory Spaces of Catalonia, promoted by the Memorial Democràtic.
