"Since 1919 the library has been called Bayerische Staatsbibliothek. It was founded in 1558 by Duke Albrecht V as the Wittelsbach court library. It is now the central regional library of the federal state of Bavaria, the state authority for all library matters in Bavaria and one of the biggest academic libraries in German-speaking countries .
The library holds more than seven million volumes, outstanding older collections including precious incunabula, numerous special collections (such as maps, literary remains, autographs, bookplates, portraits, the portrait and photograph archives, painters' books) as well as one of the most important manuscript collections worldwide." - Web site
