The Sociological Research Center on Everyday Life and Work (QUIT) received the Amic de les Biblioteques Award on November 24. The director, Joan Miquel Verd, received the award from Núria Casaldàliga, director of the Library Service.
Since 2016, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona wants to recognize, with the award those people or institutions that have made outstanding contributions to the libraries of the University.
So far these contributions have been documentary funds on paper but with the award to the QUIT, the Social Sciences Library, wanted to make a recognition to the contributions to the digital library.
The QUIT is a center with a large and relevant scientific production and was the first research center in the field of social sciences that bet on open science, incorporating this production to the Digital Document Repository of the UAB-DDD, where its collection is one of the most numerous in this subject area, with a collection that has been growing every year since 2014.
