MUVS Online Library

At present, our library contains approximately 3,500 works. Many of them cannot be found in any other library, are out of print, or buying them would involve considerable cost and effort. Since our library isn’t open to the public, most of the holdings are online: the majority of the older books have been scanned and are available on our website free of charge. Use our website’s search function to find books, which can be either read online or downloaded. Searching their contents for specific keywords is also possible.

This also applies to our holdings of articles from newspapers and magazines, brochures, flyers, posters, patient package inserts, other original documents, etc., which will be made available online as soon as possible.

Many of the books are in gothic script or another old-fashioned writing system, meaning modern readers might have difficulty deciphering them. For this reason, they have been run through a character-recognition program.
