The National and University Library (NUK) serves as the national library of Slovenia, the main library of the University of Ljubljana for humanities and social sciences, the Slovenian legal deposit library and the trusted digital repository for Slovenian cultural and scientific heritage. NUK is the headquarters of the Slovene bibliographical service, and the national aggregator of e-contents from the field of culture to Europeana.

With roots in the 18th century, the institution was housed in the exquisite cultural monument conceived by Slovene architect Jože Plečnik and built 1938–1940. A four-storey, four-winged building in the shape of an irregular rectangle, with two small inner yards can boast with an interior with a number of excellent architectural details, made of marble, bronze, or wood.

Along with the National Museum of Slovenia, which is located in the same building, the Slovenian Museum of Natural History is Slovenia's oldest cultural and scientific institution, originating as the Provincial Museum of Carniola, which was established in 1821 and became the National Museum in 1921. The museum, located in the town centre of Ljubljana near Tivoli Park, gained from the Austrian government at its establishment the Žiga Zois collection of books and minerals and the Count Hohenwart collection of mollusc shells. It has a dislocated unit, the Alpine Botanical Garden Juliana, in Trenta.
