Information services for SWP researchers

The SWP library is an in-house service facility for SWP researchers. It acquires, catalogues and lends academic literature, particularly electronic and printed journals as well as grey literature.

By arrangement, the Information Services team can also provide information services for members of the German parliament and government.
