The university library of the Technische Universität Braunschweig : past and present
The university library at Braunschweig is the oldest library in a German technical university. In its history there have been three culmination points: its foundation in 1748, the move into a large modern location in 1877, and the move into a dedicated building in 1971. In the meantime its librarians have had to contend with a lot of difficulties concerning budget, space and staff, a situation that dominates again at present.
