As a library specialised in statistics, the library of the Federal Statistical Office collects official statistics of Germany, foreign countries and international organisations.

Apart from the services offered to third parties, however, it is in particular a service unit for the staff of the Federal Statistical Office, the Council of Economic Experts and the Federal Institute for Population Research

Literature search

The Online catalogue of the library of the Federal Statistical Office supports literature search records the library stocks from year of publication 1982. Apart from monographs, series, and other series similar to periodicals, all periodicals we have subscribed to are shown there.

The statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder have changed over from printed publications to online versions for most of their publications to accelerate the dissemination of results and to reduce printing costs. These publications are offered as a common stock of information in the Statistical Library.

They give not only an overview of our stock of printed literature, audiovisual media, periodicals, newspapers (only in German) and online resources but also shows the various ways of researching literature. Prior registration is preferable.
