The Lucian Blaga Central University Library, Cluj-Napoca

The Lucian Blaga Central University Library serves Babeş-Bolyai University in Romania. The library was founded in 1872 at the same time as the University of Cluj (now Babeş-Bolyai University). Its initial stock, about 18,000 volumes, was made up by gathering the collections received from the Law Academy of Sibiu, the Medical School and Government Archives of Cluj, and those of Iosif Benigni's rich private collections. From its foundation until 1909, the library functioned in the main university building. From 1906 to 1908, the current library building was erected following plans by architects Gergely Kálmán and Korb Floris Nándor. Books were then moved there in 1908-09. Extensions to the building were added in 1934, and an annex with a capacity of over 2,000,000 volumes was added in 1961.
