The history of the city library Ulm has been reviewed up to the year 1968 as far as the sources are available. This report focusses on the contemporary development since 1968 and especially on tasks resulting from the organisational merging of the public department (former Volksbucherei, est. 1896) and the scientific department (city library, est. 1516) in the years 1998/99. The development's discussion is guided by the questions which tasks have remained coming from the historic collection of books and the scientific city library's tradition, and how and to which extent they can be worked on at present.
