Special Reading Room


In the Special Reading Room, you can make use of the special stock from the following fields at about 30 workplaces:

In the event of enquiries regarding the special stocks, please contact the respective pertinent area in advance (see right-hand column for contact details).

Please note that not all special stocks are listed in the WLB Catalogue. Complementary special catalogues about manuscripts, about old and rare prints, about maps and graphics and about music may be of help.

The stocks can usually be made use of after ordering in advance only and the provision thereof may take up to two working days. Find out about this from the respective special collection.
You will need a valid library card to order the stocks.
In addition, when making use of manuscripts and incunabula, you will have to prove your identity with your ID card or passport when signing in to the special reading room.

In the special reading room, you have access to important to pertinent specialist literature on the history of the printed book (approx. 8,500 volumes), to codicology incl. manuscript catalogues (approx. 12,000 volumes), to the history of architecture and art (approx. 12,000 volumes) and access to a smaller reserve shelf of the maps and graphic collection.
