Catalogues & Resources

The library has an extensive collection of literature relevant to the history of science and other research fields handled at the Institute. Its collection is constantly expanding, and includes current research literature as well as a collection of rara from the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. The printed inventory also includes a collection of estates, mainly documents of physicists from the first half of the twentieth century. Our collections are searchable through the library catalog.

In addition, the library provides access to a large number of electronic books, periodicals, full-text and reference databases and digitized rara (ECHO—Cultural Heritage Online). Further information on the catalogs and databases can be found below.
