In addition, the library offers literature on art and cultural history, epoch-spanning graphics and other fields of art history and topics such as aesthetics, art theory, and iconography as well as heraldry and numismatics. A large area is dedicated to art topography and is equipped with fundamental works and tourist literature.

Moreover, we offer a variety of journals, auction catalogs and price lists, stock catalogs of public and private collections, basic reference books and specialized literature on museology.

In addition to study desks, a special reading room invites visitors to study the extensive graphics collection.
