Information services for SWP researchers

The Information Research team is divided into the following sub-divisions:


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 & Knowledge Management team can also provide information services for members of the German parliament and government.
