Militia building of 1606 The complex of buildings which houses the University Library includes the "Militia" building of 1606. Behind the seventeenth-century façade is the exhibition room. Here highlights of the library collection are regularly on display, either in connection with current research or on the occasion of a special event, such as a recent acquisition or donation.
