This paper addresses the quantification of literary production in Spanish between 1900 and 1945.
To obtain quantitative data, we must consider catalogue records both of main libraries and of newspaper and
periodicals libraries. The latter preserve literary magazines that feature articles and translations from peripheral
authors who were overshadowed or forgotten by historical narrative. Given the absence of proper cataloguing in
newspaper and periodicals libraries, it is necessary to develop a workflow that enables massive and accurate searches.
The aim of the proposed methodology is to build a meta catalogue that allows to search for authors and works together
with translators or illustrators. Only this way will we be able to obtain an overall image of that literary
