Profile of the collection
The Library of the Centre for Historical Research of the PAS in Berlin is a specialist academic library collecting publications on Polish and German history. Its main goal is to gather a book-collection on Polish-German relations and one topically related to the Centre’s research projects. The library offers literature on European history, culture, spiritual heritage, regional history and memory culture. It possesses many notable literary and biographic publications in Polish. The book collection comprises almost 10.000 volumes, mainly Polish publications unobtainable in other Berlin libraries, as well as the more noteworthy positions in German. Gifts and antiquarian acquisitions have also provided the library with a precious, from the scientific point of view, collection of archives. Further to that, the library subscribes Polish and German scientific journals. Its additional aim is to collect Polish émigré publications in Germany.

The library is a member of the OPL-Arbeitskreis Berlin-Brandenburg.
