Our Catalogue

The combined catalogue of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition and the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance shows the literature that is available on site.

Here, you will find all of the journals and books available at the library. In addition to location information, you will obtain extra information as to whether a book is checked out, was just ordered or is still in processing. You can also look up e-books in our catalogue. Those e-books are almost always freely available on the internet (Open Access), and are indicated by a green point in the hit list.

Our catalogue does not list articles in periodicals. However, you can find contributions in commemorations (Festschriften) and collected editions by searching the tables of contents.

Newly arrived books are listed in the “new acquisitions list” on a monthly basis.

Catalogues of other Max Planck Institutes

The collections of other Max Planck Institutes with a legal or economic orientation are compiled in their own library catalogues. Should you find a needed title there, it may potentially be borrowed short-term from another Institute, or you may send us an acquisition request.
