Besides the old holdings of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (BSB) and the UniversitAtsbibliothek MA1/4nchen (UBM), the 3rd CD-ROM edition of Bavarian Catalogue of Early Printed Books covers the old holdings of printed works of further Bavarian libraries: the Staats- und Stadtbibliothek Augsburg (SBA), the UniversitAtsbibliothek Augsburg (UBA) and the Staatliche Bibliothek Regensburg (SBR). These books, the heritage of a significant cultural 'landscape', are now even more extensively accessible: In addition to the two oldest and largest existing libraries of 'Old Bavaria' BSB and UBM, it includes the old holdings of the SBA, which has a history going back to the time of the Reformation, as well as the historical holdings of the UBA (with the Oettingen-Wallersteinschen Bibliothek) and the SBR.

About 690,000 titles originate from the BSB, 326,000 from the UBM, almost 140,000 from the SBA, roughly 157,000 from the UBA, and approximately 68,000 from the SBR.
