The Holdings of Our Library

Whether it is about the history of social welfare work, about welfare laws, about housebuilding during the war years or about progressive educational approaches: the DZI library offers a unique collection of historical and contemporary sources.

For here we provide literature on social work, social pedagogy and social welfare work which has been published in Germany since 1880. Our library does not only contain 55,000 books, but also 170 specialist journals so as to offer all of the essential articles and scientific papers which are published on the above subjects. This is an enormous range of material which can only be made accessible by using a strict classification system.

The holdings are subdivided into a systematically catalogued old stock (PDF) with media which were published before 1980 and a new stock which is catalogued electronically in the literature database DZI SoLit. An important working basis is a list of specialist journals (PDF) which is updated regularly.

Books which are not older than fifty years can be borrowed. As to all other publications, the DZI library will make copies for a fee. You can find further information under Search & Service.
