The library of the AIP is a central service facility for the employees of the institute. However, the rich and diverse holdings are also of interest and usable for guests from outside and interested laymen. For more information on the use of the library and its holdings, please click here...

Opening hours with personal consultation on site:

Monday - Thursday: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Friday: 9 a.m. - 15 p.m.

As we are a small team we cannot always guarantee opening hours for external users. Therefore we recommend to inquire by phone or mail before arrival.

Access to the reading room is possible for employees outside opening hours using the transponder.
