The Academic Library at the Sudetendeutsche Haus

With approximately 170,000 items, the library boasts the largest specialist collection on the history of the Bohemian lands, Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia in Germany and Western Europe.




The library is administrated by the Collegium Carolinum and includes the holdings of the following organizations:

The collection covers three central topics: the history and culture of the Bohemian lands from the early modern period to the present, twentieth century Slovak history, and the history of the Habsburg monarchy. Works on jurisprudence, philology, literature, cultural memory, the history of art and culture, church and religious history, and ethnic studies are also well-represented. Alongside legal texts, topographical works, encyclopedias and dictionaries on economic history, and biographical reference works, the library also holds academic journals (where possible from the first volume onwards), the yearbooks of associations and schools, Czech and Slovak newspapers from the post-war period, as well as journalistic writings by German expellees, and publications by Czechoslovak emigrants.

The library is a reference library and a member of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Münchner Osteuropabibliotheken (The Association of Eastern Europe Libraries in Munich) which was founded in December 2001.
