The centre started thanks to the initiative of sociologist Magdalena Leon who donated her collection of books and other documents, collected between 1970 and 1987. In 1991 the collection was put up in the National University. In 1994 the Documentation Centre started indexing the books, periodicals and other documents, and opened its doors to the public. The documentation centre is unique in Colombia and is frequently visited by students, teachers, intermediaries of the government and members of non-governmental organizations. The objectives of the centre are to contribute to the process of social development and change through the provision of information; to establish a specialized information service to reflect on women's experiences; and to connect national and international information networks.
