 === Historical note === === Historical note ===
 The Warsaw University Library was founded in 1817, at the same time as the Warsaw University. Its collection of over 135,000 books and periodicals printed before 1801 comprises one of four such collections of the research libraries in Poland. Two collections formed the foundation of the library: the Warsaw Lyceum Library and the Library at the Court of Appeals. The Library was greatly expanded over the next years by collecting holdings from suppressed monastery and church libraries. During the turbulent 19th century, when Poland lost her independence,​ the collection was moved to the Russian Empire and, after a few decades, duplicates from the Imperial Public Library were ordered to be sent back to Warsaw. Thus, some books from the Zaluski Library, the Library of the Society of Friends of Science, and other Polish libraries which had earlier been taken to Petersburg, found their way back to Warsaw. Other early imprints were acquired at that time, such as those of the library of the Polish Bank and the collection of the liberal Russian official Arkady Tolocanov. After the Second World War, the Library of the Synod of the Evangelical-Reformed Church, the Wallenberg Library, and the residential library of the Schönaichs from Carolath-Beuthen in Silesia were added along with parts of the libraries coming from the regions of Pomerania and Silesia.\\ ​ The Warsaw University Library was founded in 1817, at the same time as the Warsaw University.
