You can search the library's collection in our local catalog Aleph. This includes monographs, serials and journals. Furthermore you have the option to borrow books yourself and to access your library account.
Here you will find the guidelines for your user account and for the self-checkout.
In addition, you can get an overview of newly acquired books through our monthly list of new acquisitions.
A parallel search in our local print stock and the Max Planck Society's central e-books catalog is also possible.
Terms of loan
Generally, the library stock may only be borrowed by members of the institutes. The initial loan period amounts to 60 days. Subsequently you can perform an online-extension until a maximum loan period of one year is reached. On level 3 you can find a book return box which allows you to return borrowed books at any time.
Journals cannot be borrowed. However, there are copiers available on both levels.
