The library is a central service institution for scholars in the institute. Our work is focused on efficient, fast and need-based information coverage necessary for research.

The library collection  is oriented primarily towards institute's research profile. Extensive services complement and facilitate access to numerous print and electronic information sources.
The library of the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies will remain closed for external visitors until further notice. This is a preventive measure to protect against coronavirus infections. We apologise for any inconvenience. The online services are still available.
