Local life-long learning:
Cooperation between
public libraries and adult
education centres to form
communal education
By Bernd Sibler, p. 6
In his article, Bernd Sibler, State Sec-
retary in the Bavarian State Ministry of
Education and Culture, Science and
the Arts, and First Chairman of the Ba-
varian Library Association, encourages
an intensification of the cooperation
between libraries and adult education
centres. Both institutions provide local
and low-threshold access to media
and education. Cooperation between
these two strong partners can contrib-
ute to comprehensive and networked
opportunities for life-long learning in
the region. By means of examples from
the Free State of Bavaria, the author
explains how a communal education
landscape can be designed.

The world in the 16th
century: The purchase of
a Lafreri atlas for the Bay-
erische Staatsbibliothek
By Claudia Fabian, p. 32
With the generous support of the Cul-
tural Foundation of the German Länder
and further sponsors – among them the
Giesecke & Devrient Foundation – the
Bayerische Staatsbibliothek has man-
aged to purchase an extremely precious
Italian collective atlas of the 16th centu-
ry from a private owner for around EUR
1.4 million. The atlas is a so-called La-
freri atlas. Antonio Lafreri (1512-1577)
was an Italian publisher and map trader
who was the first to publish atlases in
a uniform format. The new acquisition
contains 191 individual maps by the
most renowned Italian map engravers,
all of them of high scholarly quality and
additionally valuable and rare, partly
even unknown so far. Fifteen of them
are considered as high points of car-
tography. This new acquisition is intro-
duced in the article.
The “Lorsch Pharmaco-
poeia” from the Bamberg
State Library in the
UNESCO’s Memory of
the World Register
By Werner Taegert, p. 39
The “Lorsch Pharmacopoeia” in
the Bamberg State Library, compiled
around the year 795 in the Benedic-
tine Abbey of Lorsch, was inscribed
into UNESCO’s Memory of the World
Register in 2013. This medical-pharma-
ceutical manuscript is the earliest reli-
ably datable compendium of classical
remedies in the Greco-Roman tradition
from the (Latin) Early Middle Ages in Eu-
rope. The entire work can be regarded
as a key witness for the reappraisal of
medicine over the course of the Car-
olingian educational reform in the late
eighth century. Its foreword provides
the most comprehensive surviving intel-
lectual discussion from the Carolingian
age that seeks to justify systematically
a positive reception of classical learn-
ing. The manuscript documents the first
post-antique impulse of the immense
transformative process that resulted in
the acceptance of the classical inher-
itance under Christian auspices.
Flyer publication in
libraries. Part 1
By Rita Kamm-Schubert, p. 56
Flyers to announce events can be
produced quickly and cost-effectively.
However, their successful use requires
something more: Conceptual design
and planning and networking in a com-
munication mix. In a 2-part series of
articles, the conceptual design and pro-
duction process of flyers is examined in
detail in theory and by means of prac-
tical examples. The first part focuses
on general considerations with regard
to the production of print materials in
libraries. The question is explored in
particular whether, in the age of “infor-
mation overload”, the digital media will
supersede the quickly and cost-effec-
tively produced flyer, putting it to flight.
20 years
of active cooperation
By Heike Christiane Daume, p. 68
The City Library of Villingen-Schwen-
ningen (Baden-Württemberg) has prac-
tised a model of Germany-wide renown
of cooperation between libraries and
schools on the basis of a partnership
agreement for 20 years. The meeting
of the cooperation team is at the core
of the model. Over 30 different read-
ing-promotion modules for all class
levels and the 6th form were developed
by the reading-promotion team, part-
ly in cooperation with the teachers. All
reading-promotion modules match the
education plan and are collected in the
“spiral curriculum”. A method catalogue
ensures i.a. the positive development of
the cooperation. Class visits to the city
library have become customary. How-
ever, the libraries also visit the schools
reversely. The programme is comple-
mented by special events, e.g. on the
occasion of project days at the schools.
