The British Library houses one of the most valuable documents ever printed in the world and, along with the National Library in Paris is the richest European library. It is located in a modern building, and it’s equipped with the latest equipment, and contains documents that cover almost three millennia: from “Diamon Sutra “, Buddhist (868 BC) to the modern writings of Paul McCartney. “Books” section contains over 15 million volumes, plus each year 600.000 new copies; “Manuscripts” section: more than 70.000 books and 100.000 documents and papyruses. The “Books and oriental manuscripts” section includes over 35.000 manuscripts and 250.000 printed volumes. Some of the most beautiful and precious specimens are exhibited in the halls of the British Museum (29-32). Due to lack of space within the Museum, since 1997, the British Library was moved near St. Pancras Station. The project made by architect Wilson, resulted in a construction with a surprising architectural style: in the center is a glass tower in which was designed the library of George III, called “King’s Library”.
