The library

As a common library of the Max Planck Institutes for Solid State Research and Intelligent Systems we are responsible for the information and literature supply of our staff members and guests.

Our aim is to support the members of the institutes in their daily research projects. In order to achieve this, we provide a current and attractive offer of information and services. The expansion of electronic media is of particular importance. A transparent way of working, both internally and externally, is self-evident for us.

Our services for staff members and guests

  • Literature acquisition and provision

  • Interlibrary loan / Document supply services

  • Licensing and administration of electronic resources

  • Contact partner for queries regarding procurement and access to literature

  • Regular library introductions

  • Support in the area of open access

  • Management of publications in the repository of the Max Planck Society (MPG.PuRe)

  • Provision of online services (Aleph catalogue with self-check loan, website, etc.)

Our self-conception

The library users are the first priority, an individual consulting of each user is important for us. We maintain an active exchange of information and knowledge among our colleagues and departments.

We strive to constantly optimise the performance capability of the library. Regular further training ensures the necessary competence and promotes the further development of the individual employees.
