Dear visitors,

the INEF library is currently not open to the general public. The staff also works mainly from home office and is only on site on Thursdays from 10.00-15.30 to take care of any tasks that arise. On these days, the staff can, in exceptional cases and to a limited extent, make scanned copies of urgently needed literature. Please contact the library staff at the e-mail address below.
As the INEF library is a presence library, items cannot be borrowed.

As of 07.04.21, the library staff's present day will change from Thursday to Wednesday.
The times (10.00-15.30) remain the same.

Please send requests by email to:

Stay healthy!
