We have one goal: To provide one of the world's best mathematics libraries.

The library of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences is offering its services mainly to the institute’s scientists. Of course, it is open to all interested visitors.

For institute members:For visitors:
  • access the library website and our licensed eResources via
  • register with us and get your library card in the E3 section during office hours
  • use the library and borrow books during the institute’s opening hours: 8 a.m. - 11 p.m.
  • contact the reception to use the library and its services during office hours
    (Inselstraße 22, 3rd floor)
  • unfortunately, the books can only be used inside the library

Office hours: Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Don’t hesitate to contact us: library[at]

Enjoy the benefits of an excellent and inspiring research environment and a dedicated library team including our young talents.
