 The beginnings of the Library are connected with the establishing of the University in the year 1811. It started to work formally in 1815 as Königliche- und Universitätsbibliothek zu Breslau. Its resources contained the collections of the united libraries of the Viadrina University of Frankfurt (upon Oder) and the Leopold University of Wrocław, including additionally the book collections of secularized Silesian monasteries. The beginnings of the Library are connected with the establishing of the University in the year 1811.

 During the Second World War the 75 % of this collection was completely destroyed. Reactivated after the War in the Polish Wrocław, the University Library took over the collections of the former Stadtbibliothek,​ that mostly survived the War, with valuable resources of Wrocław'​s gymnasium schools: St. Elisabeth'​s (so-called Rehdigerana),​ St. Maria-Magdalena'​s and St. Bernhardin'​s,​ which formed the basis of the reconstructed book collection. During the Second World War the 75 % of this collection was completely destroyed.

 Nowadays, the old prints collection of the University Library consists of such basic groups as the large, in spite of great wartime losses, resource of the former Königliche- und Universitätsbibliothek,​ the historical resource of the Stadtbibliothek and the resources of many Silesian provincial libraries belonging to convents, schools, palaces and private owners. Some of these collections remained to present times in their historical form, for example Jerzy Rudolf, Duke of Legnica'​s Renaissance library (so-called Rudolphina). It's also worth paying attention to the enormous (more than 40,000 volumes) collection of so-called Silesiaca: prints coming from local Silesian publishing houses, the first of which began in Wrocław already in 1475. Nowadays, the old prints collection of the University Library consists of such basic groups as the large, in spite of great wartime losses, resource of the former Königliche- und Universitätsbibliothek,​ the historical resource of the Stadtbibliothek and the resources of many Silesian provincial libraries belonging to convents, schools, palaces and private owners.
