The "Library and Research Information" department provides RWI employees with scientific literature and media of all kinds. In addition, it offers support with literature searches and interlibrary loans and provides advice on the publication process and on the topic of open access. In this context, the team is also involved in the Leibniz Association's working groups "Libraries and Specialized Information Facilities" and "Open Access".
As a specialized scientific library, the collection focuses primarily on economic literature; the collection profile is oriented toward the institute's respective projects and research foci. The comprehensive digital offer of journals, e-books and databases is continuously being expanded.
The library is also available to external interested parties by appointment as a reference library with copying facilities.
