SAV - logoThe Central Library of SAS is among the libraries where their age does not determinate the date of their formation. When counting the age of the Central Library of SAS (it holds its name since April 1954) we must not forget its predecessors. The library immediately followed up on them and overtook their funds. From this perspective, the library is one of the oldest in Slovakia. Besides library funds of the Library of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Library of Slovak Learned Society and the Library of Learned Society of Šafárik, since 1954 it manages also the funds of the library of the former Lutheran Seminary, the so called Seminary Library, establishment already in17th century.

The library fund is universal, it has more than 538 thousand books, periodicals and other primary documents from all disciplines and linguistic areas at present.
