"A visit to" Dr. Berthold Gillitzer – Insights into the User Services Department
An extra library department is required for permitting all users to use the many different types of collections and materials of a modern universal library such as the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in line with their individual requirements. This department ensures that literature is made accessible to the users quickly and comfortably and also provides help: support doing searches, during the users’ visit to the library and concerning all library-related questions. This work is done by the employees of the User Services Department.
