The current volume of the Montenegrin collection of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek cannot be stated in numbers. The modern holdings cannot be separated linguistically from the Serbian holdings, and those from before the country's independence in 2006 cannot be distinguished by country of publication entered in the catalogue either. The Bayerische Staatsbibliothek unfortunately does not hold a specimen of the five incunabula printed in the capital Cetinje of the Duchy of Montenegro. The oldest printed books of the collection are from the 1860s. Currently, the Montenegrin collection grows by around 100 titles per year.
