Four hundred years ago, on 28 February 1615, the University Library of Groningen was officially instituted. This book celebrates the four centuries during which the Library matured from a single room with chained books to a modern and busy centre which is an information hub and a social meeting place as well. The Library has always been committed to support research and teaching by collecting books, periodicals and other documentary materials, today in digital formats as well. Our digital services make the collections accessible to the widest possible audience, and we keep in mind the enduring importance of the physical collections. It is our duty to preserve this unique academic and cultural heritage for future generations. This book not only marks the Library’s four-hundredth anniversary, but it also appears in a time of many changes. From September 2014, over the next few years the building will undergo a complete transformation. This is another reason why it appropriately focuses on the present-day building and the organisation’s long history. The forty collections presented here form a selection of the many delightful, fascinating and rare items in our care. Together they give an impression of the treasures preserved by our Library, a trust which, it is hoped, we will continue to honour for many centuries to come
