Welcome to the HZB main library

This is your first visit to this site? Maybe your first visit to the Helmholtz Centre Berlin?

You are most welcome here. Please browse and put yourself - and us! - to a first test:

  • can I find access to my favourite journals at HZB?
  • in stock of the main library?
  • does it come in paper form or in electronic form?
  • where can I find the catalogue of books and reports?
  • do they have my favourite text books?
  • who can I turn to in case I have a question?

Our pages are designed as your first stop when you need to look up literature. You may want to start here when you are out for some journal article or a book, when you want to explore the literature about a subject or to order some article that is not available locally. We also inform you on these pages about news about literature,  which may be of interest for you. If you want to follow our pages or the news closely and not miss any changes you may consider getting a signal once any page has been updated.

We like to meet you in person too. Please come and see us. You may find journals here that you never thought they even existed.

Your friendly colleagues in the main library
