Our library currently has ca. 70,000 items in a variety of media. The focus of its collection is on three fields: nineteenth-century Munich painting, the Blue Rider, and selected aspects of post-1945 art.

In 2009, we began to build an online catalogue of our holdings in the framework of the Bibliotheksverbund Bayern, Berlin, Brandenburg (B3Kat). Accessing our database via B3Kat's union catalog or our OPAC, users may search our holdings. Books may not be removed from the museum, but may be consulted by guests; visits must be arranged in advance.
