The Hispanic Digital Library is the digital library of the Biblioteca Nacional de España. It provides access free of charge to thousands of digitised documents, including books printed from the 15th to the 19th century, manuscripts, drawings, engravings, pamphlets, posters, photographs, maps, atlases, music scores, historic newspapers and magazines and audio recordings.

Part of the BDH is the Hemeroteca Digital, a collection of historical Spanish newspapers, which can be consulted separately. The BDH can be searched by title, author, material, collection and description through the search page. A full text search is available too. It is also possible to browse the BDH by collection using the Colecciones BDH page.
