About us

The Württemberg State Library is the largest academic library in Baden-Württemberg.

The WLB is the foremost institution for regional and supra-regional information and literature supply in Baden-Württemberg. More than 6 million media items are held ready in its stacks and reading rooms for research, teaching, further vocational training and general education. These include books, newspapers and journals, manuscripts, rare books, music scores, as well as maps, prints, posters, letters from the front, photographs, microforms and electronic media. Over 1 million media items are borrowed per year.

The WLB cooperates with partners in the cultural, scientific and commercial sectors both within Germany and abroad. It offers a manifold programme of exhibitions and lectures, in which it is supported by the Württembergische Bibliotheksgesellschaft – Freunde der Württembergischen Landesbibliothek e.V.
