The HZB's scientific special library procures the required literature - as a loan or by purchase, electronically or on paper, from its own inventory or through interlibrary loan, and also at your workplace in the web browser via direct links on the provider pages or with the help of literature databases.

It supports and advises on publishing in scientific journals (with a focus on Open Access) and concludes publication agreements with publishers. It ensures the quality of the literature database and records all publications from the HZB environment there.
