Using the Library
The library of the Max-Planck-Institute for Medical Research is a reference library containing specialized scientific literature. The holdings of the library - about 62,000 volumes of scientific journals and about 7,000 monographs - are situated in three main locations: the library, the stacks and the scientific departments. Holdings in the library itself can be fetched by users themselves; for the other locations it is necessary to contact the library team.
Members of the Institute can borrow books for use within the institute by
using the Selfcheck machine in the library. Guests cannot borrow any books or
