Academic Research Service

Due to the current closure of the library, no applications can be made and processed at the moment.  


The Staatsbibliothek wants to create the best possible conditions for your research work by offering a number of privileges:

  • Reservation of a permanent locker (available at site Potsdamer Straße) resp. a research trolley (available at site Unter den Linden) for keeping your documents onsite, each of which can be rented for one month (5 €/month)
    Application form for a permanent locker / research trolley
  • Admission of a higher lending quota in the reading room or offsite loan (free of charge)
    Application form for a higher lending quota


All offers are only available on a limited scale. They are limited in time and can be extended, if sufficient. This service can only be offered for general holdings and general reading rooms. All queries for the working with special material (e. g. newspapers, maps or sheet music) should be directed to the respective special department.
