The library at the MPIfG is a central part of the Institute's infrastructure and offers an extensive range of services to support our researchers and their work.
Our work as the MPIfG's library is dedicated to providing fast, efficient, and needs-based information coverage for research. We have a comprehensive analog and digital collection of books, databases, journals, and newspaper sources from the fields of sociology and political and economic sciences. The library holdings are developed and managed to primarily reflect the Institute's research interests. In addition to our role in supplying information and resources to researchers, we offer a range of other services including support with literature management and information retrieval, research data management, and guidance on open access publications.
