Parts of the titles are incomplete but they are really interesting and remarkable holdings which are intensively used by numerous users primarily by scientific workers, domestic and foreign. Although most of the titles are in foreign languages and were issued in other countries, the importances of these holdings are unquestionable because they represent authentic material for studying the history of the Macedonian nation (culture, tradition, etc.).
