    The Old Collection holds works printed 1600-1950, partly originating in the acquisition of David Simonsen's library (1932), partly from other donations, e.g. parts of the collection of the Bund Worker's Reading Room in Copenhagen (1967).

    The New Collection contains publications printed 1951 and later (catalogued 1971-).
