Research & Use


The bulk of our holdings may be searched via our online catalogues. We will gladly provide personal assistance on behalf of your research. Due to time constraints, we cannot however assume responsibility for extensive research tasks.

Working with the library and the archive

Materials from the library and archive may be consulted in the reading room; our terms of use apply. In addition, books from the library are eligible for weekend borrowing.


Particularly in the case of extensive research plans, advance registration is recommended so that we may provide proper assistance.


If you are looking for accommodation during your research visit, two in-house guest studios are available for rent at reasonable rates.
