More about the library

The Hertie School of Governance is an institution of higher learning committed to academic excellence. The library team sees it as its responsibility to equip students and faculty with the necessary tools for their academic research. We try to accomplish this goal by providing our library users with access to electronic resources from everywhere on campus. Relevant articles from journals, such as the European Journal of Political Research or Journal of Public Policy, are just a mouse click away. The library offers access to a long list of databases, the most prominent being EconLit, Lexis Nexis, and JSTOR. Beyond online databases, the library team is constantly developing and building other research resources such as a print collection, which offers important literature on policy, law, and economy. The online catalogue is growing daily and offers students an overview of the library collections.

The Library and Information Services (LIS) of the Hertie School of Governance is located on the first floor (1. OG) of the campus. A reading room is attached to the library for students and others who seek a calm and quiet place to work. The library and the reading room also offer a number of communal network points available to students to plug in their laptops in order to access the internet after authentication. Students at the Hertie School of Governance have the advantage of an innovative research infrastructure combined with a committed library team, who are constantly busy developing and improving educational and research opportunities.
