Library of the Brno Regional Museum

Administers two library sections:

Library of the Brno Regional Museum
Library of the Rajhrad Benedictine Abbey

Researchers have access to both collections in the reading room: a digital card catalog of the Benedictine library and an electronic catalog of the Library of the Brno Regional Museum are available on the Brno Regional Museum webpages.

Library of the Brno Regional Museum
The collection comprises publications of a specialist, particularly historical, regional, archaeological and art-history character. The library was established by merging of the libraries of the Museum’s predecessors and its present branches. Books are kept at the central library of the Museum of literature in Moravia and in reference libraries of the Brno Regional Museum branches. The publications from the central library and reference library of the Museum of literature in Moravia can be studied in the Museum’s reading room, books from reference libraries of the other branches can only be studied based on prior arrangement always at the respective branch locations.

Library Code                    Libri de bibliotheca nostra

Library of the Rajhrad Benedictine Abbey
One of the largest monastic libraries in the Czech Republic. The collections comprising 65 000 volumes of manuscripts, old prints and 19th. century prints include a great amount of unique books. These can be searched in the original card catalog also accessible in the digital form. To search for 16th. century books, publications relating to Bohemian history and geography and prints published in Brno, printed catalogs can be used, compiled by workers of the Moravian Province Library in Brno at the time this institution administered the Library of the Rajhrad Benedictine Abbey. At present the collection is being newly catalogized.
