Library Services

The library's collections and services are open to researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, and are closely tailored to the needs of the researchers working at the Institute and their very diverse research topics. Our aim is to give you the best possible support for your research, delivering whatever you need to your workplace as quickly as possible. We have a large collection of print and digital sources and secondary literature, and offer you round-the-clock access to our extensive print and digital collections and to study desks. We provide a range of services, including a special interlibrary loan (ILL) service to bring you print and digital sources straight from other collections worldwide; digitization of sources for your research and publications; help with optical character recognition and image processing; copyright research and help with obtaining permission to reproduce materials for your publications; and assistance with bibliography management, including software such as Zotero or EndNote.
