Xenpelar Documentation Centre’s library, on the web

The catalogue gathers more than 500 references of books and articles related to bertsolarism. The database contains material about oral art disciplines and improvised verse singing in the world too.

Xenpelar Documentation Centre organizes its library since 1991, composed by references of releases about bertsolarism. Throughout these years, it has also collected material about oral art disciplines and other improvised verse singing expressions in the world.

This database was already available in the centre for everyone who was interested but it has just been arranged for the Internet now, as there were no hitherto enough resources. The database is included in BDB, the Bertsolarism Data Base developed by Xenpelar Documentation Centre. Access to the library, here.

Among the references gathered in the catalogue, there are 548 releases which are available on the Internet and the rest, in paper, is accessible for everybody at the centre. Thanks to bertsolarism fans, information about other improvised verse singing expressions have been obtained for the database. Overall, the catalogue displays data of 6,600 works.

At your disposal

In order to give assistance to researchers who are studying bertsolarism and the world improvised verse singing universe, references of academic databases are included too; therefore, new 900 references have been collected. Xenpelar will continue working in this direction, enriching at the same time the Kulturartea Mapa database, the world improvised verse singing database.
