The GPG library comprises one of the largest and richest collections in Geography in the country, with more than 25,000 works referenced in the Minerva database of the UFRJ Library and Information System (SIBI). There are books, thesis, dissertations, censuses, and rare works of Geography and related areas, such as Philosophy, Sociology, Economics, Regional Urban Planning, History of Ideas, and Natural Sciences. More than 180 national and foreign newspapers are part of the collection. In 1992, the private collection of Geographers Lysia and Nilo Bernardes was acquired with the support of the Rectory of UFRJ, broadening in number and quality the library’s collection. More recently, the libraries of pPofessors Bertha Becker and Mauricio de Almeida Abreu have been gradually incorporated into the collection. The GPG Library is integrated with the Central Library of the Center for Mathematics and Nature – CCMN, which also serves the students and professors of the program. The collection is continuously updated with the acquisition of new works demonstrates the importance of the GPG library for the community of Geographers and Geography students, not only of UFRJ, but also of the Graduate courses in geography of UFF and UERJ, among other interested parties. In 2013, the GPG Library was renamed The Mauricio de Almeida Abreu Library, as a way to honor his decisive action in the constitution and expansion of the collection.
