General Administration Department

The General Administration Department works behind the scenes to support library services.

The department is responsible for ensuring that the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin has the material resources it needs to fulfil its duties. It is responsible for the administration of a budget of approximately 16 million Euros.

Furthermore, through its infrastructural services, it ensures that the four buildings, with their diverse technical requirements, remain functional and that the services necessary to maintain operations of this scale - such as janitorial and telephone services – can be provided.
