 === Historical note === === Historical note ===
 By decree of the empress Maria Theresa, issued in 1774, 637 books spared by the fire in the previously dissolved Jesuit college, were transferred to the newly established library of the Ljubljana Lyceum, and intended for public use. Gifts from private, mostly aristocratic libraries were added to the collection, including books from the monasteries dissolved between 1782 and 1790. In 1807, the Library was granted the right to receive legal deposit copies for the Carniola Province. By 1820, the collection had grown to ca. 20,000 volumes covering mainly theology, church history, philosophy, philology, general history, civil and canon law. Less emphasis was put on science, medicine, and arts. After acquiring some major private libraries from learned scholars (e.g. Ziga Zois, Jernej Kopitar, Jurij Japelj), the collection grew substantially in the field of Slavic and South Slavonic philology. Thanks to librarians of that time, especially Matija Èop who systematically collected Slovenian printed materials, the library acted as the national library before this function was finally recognized. ​ By decree of the empress Maria Theresa, issued in 1774, 637 books spared by the fire in the previously dissolved Jesuit college, were transferred to the newly established library of the Ljubljana Lyceum, and intended for public use.

 From the above information,​ the recommendations for searching can be summarised: search for distinctive words in title will give better results than search for the whole phrase. Words with diacritics may have been transcribed either with a diacritic or with two characters. The place of publication can only be searched in the form as transcribed from the imprint in the publication itself as no uniform place name has been provided; using the country code may be preferred. Search for imprint year should be successful as the precise information has been entered in fixed fields. Use German for searching the subject terms. For authors'​ names, forms of first name(s) may be abbreviated and it is advisable to truncate the search. ​ From the above information,​ the recommendations for searching can be summarised: search for distinctive words in title will give better results than search for the whole phrase.
