Reading Hall

Reading Hall

In December 2015, a shared reading hall has been established for visitors of the Leopoldina archive and library. Modern work stations offer the unique possibility to access holdings of both, archive and library, simultaneously.

The reading hall offers all necessary research facilities and excellent specialist assistance. Desired books and archival materials are delivered to the reading room twice a day. Please address your order and loan requests directly to archive and/or library in advance.

Inside the building, common rooms facilitate local cooperation and interaction with other scholars.

Important Notice

Due to the city-wide measures against the spread of the corona virus, the reading room will remain closed until 30 April 2020.

All outstanding loans will be extended accordingly. Please address your inquiries to: bibliothek@leopoldina.org


Please note that the signature groups
Cb 2:
Cb 4:
Cb 8:
Cb 1 / ... 4°
are blocked for lending until presumably April 2020 due to portfolio maintenance measures.
Please contact the library staff with any questions you may have.
