Research & education

The Special Collections house a wealth of research material.

Via this site you can search catalogues and image databases, as well as find entire collections and archives.

Library material can be viewed in one of the reading rooms.

After registering, you receive a library card valid for one week or one year, which you need to request material from the closed stacks.

We are happy to make our collections available for educational purposes. There are special rooms for the use of rare material.

Please, prepare your visit well; many valuable materials can only be made available on the day after the request was placed or may be consulted by special consent or by appointment, only.
