The library is mainly a service for ZIB staff, but is open to external guests as a reference library. Internet access is provided for your laptop as well as a personal computer. The library is accessible with key at all times. The library's philosophy is "not just in case, but just in time". That means that anything you don't find on the shelves or online, we shall provide by acquisition, interlibrary loan or document delivery as quickly as possible. So don't hesitate to send your book and article orders to the library. 

Short guide to the library.

In our Wiki you can find not only further information for ZIB staff, but also details about publishing a ZIB-Report and our institutional repository OPUS (login via LDAP account).

The library is also blogging now!
