Reference & Information Services

Your questions are welcome! As a scientific institution, we do not only provide information about our own holdings, but within our means we will support you in your research.

You have questions concerning the BBF and no idea how to proceed?

Please e-mail the central enquiry service at library (YXVzbGVpaGUtYmJmQGRpcGYuZGU=) and the archive (YXJjaGl2QGRpcGYuZGU=).

You will soon receive a response. If needed, we will refer your request to the colleague in charge. We also offer specialist support with applications for research projects.

During our opening hours, you can also phone or visit us at the library.

We have compiled a special page to provide you with information regarding collections at the BBF relevant for genealogical research.
