BLANCO DOMINGO, Luis Mariano. Ideological and cultural extension: The activities of the Universidad de Zaragoza Library during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2018, n.39, pp.103-114. ISSN 1514-8327.

The aim of this article is to analyze the specific tasks in the field of cultural extension carried out by the Universidad de Zaragoza (BUZ) during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939): The custody and deposit of some private collections confiscated; the participation in actions of ideological proselitism and patriotic affirmation; and finally, the frustrated attempt to become one of the headquarters of the itinerant bibliographical exhibitions in Italy and Germany. For this, documentary sources from various archives have been used and the specific bibliography on the subject was consulted. This has allowed us to conclude that the libraries, especially the BUZ, were fully integrated into the war machine of the sides in conflict, becoming an effective propaganda weapon.

Keywords : Universidad de Zaragoza Library; Cultural Extension; Civil Spanish War; Artigas, Miguel; Lasso de la Vega, Javier.
