(2)50 Years of University and State Library Düsseldorf
In the 250 years that have passed since Charles Theodore, the Elector of Bavaria, founded a public reading room in Düsseldorf, the 700 volumes initially available have now grown to 2.5 million – not including the Digital Collections. Instead of handwritten inventories, the collections are now listed in an electronic search portal and the services go far beyond the mere provision of handwritten and printed books. During the double jubilee of ULB in 2020, we showed a virtual exhibition on the history of the library, which was successively released until October 2021. We now display the exhibition on the staircase of the Central Library.
