Working at the Library

Working at the Library

Information about the services of the Library and Research Information for members of the Institute is available on the intranet.

The Library and Research Information will be open during the following hours:
Mon - Thu 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Fri               9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


However, in view of the Corona regulations that apply to the Institute as a whole, we urge external visitors to coordinate their visit with us at least one working day in advance of the scheduled visit date by sending an e-mail to: library@mpib-berlin.mpg.de

At the same time, we would like to point out that an FFP2 mask should be worn for the duration of the library visit.

External users have access to the library's holdings on a daily or hourly basis in accordance with the Library Regulations after logging in at the lending desk. However, books can only be borrowed by members of the Institute.

It is possible to make digital copies free of charge, whereby copyright regulations must be observed. It is necessary to bring your own USB stick. On request, the copies can be printed in black and white for a fee (0.10 € per DIN A4 page).
