"We look with pride at the history of the university library as a knowledge space rich in tradition. The once rather closed library of the Collegium Carolinum has today become an institution that stands for free access to knowledge and open science."
Robert Strötgen, Senior Library Director of the UB Braunschweig, 2023
The year 1748 is considered the founding year of our current university library (in short "UB") of the TU Braunschweig. This makes it one of the oldest libraries of a technical university and this year it celebrates its 275th birthday: a good reason to celebrate. With the beginning of the summer semester, we start our diverse anniversary program. For the so-called "UBiläum", there will be many insights into the history and work of the university library, plus glimpses behind the scenes. In November, a ceremony will be the highlight of the anniversary year. Under the hashtag "#ubiläum275" on social media, we report on our activities throughout this year.
