During this time, we kindly ask you to use the other reading rooms of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.
The reference collection of the East European, Oriental and Asian Reading Room – a total of around 50,000 volumes on the countries of East, East-Central and South-East Europe, on the Orient and Asia – will continue to be accessible on the 3rd level of the General Reading Room after a transition period.
The exhibition of new acquisitions so far presented in the East European, Oriental and Asian Reading Room on a monthly basis will be discontinued for the time of the reconstruction. Please use the online search options or subscribe to our newsletter for finding out about this.
The current research literature on Sinology from Taiwan (Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies) will not be available for consultation during this period.
We are looking forward to welcoming you again in a modernised East European, Oriental and Asian Reading Room in 2018.
