The Duties of ULB as a State Library and Cooperations

Alongside Bonn and Münster, ULB Düsseldorf has been one of three State Libraries of North-Rhine Westphalia since 1993. These three libraries present  themselves and their services on their shared internet portal „Die nordrhein-westfälischen Landesbibliotheken“ where they provide information on their duties and services.

Legal Deposit

ULB Düsseldorf is primarily responsible for covering the administrative district of Düsseldorf. It collects the legal deposit copies for this administrative region, ULB Bonn for the administrative district of Cologne and ULB Münster for Westphalia. In addition, electronic publications with the status of official publications of the State authorities, or grey literature by companies, associations and organizations are being collected by ULB.

Regional Literature, Bibliography for North Rhine-Westphalia

In addition, the three State Libraries acquire literature of regional interest then listed in the North Rhine-Westphalian Bibliography.
