The IfB’s library is a small special library with a major emphasis on collections of works related to fisheries science (particularly fishery biology, fish ecology and fish breeding/aquaculture), limnology, hydrobiology and exploiting inland waters.
The library’s collection also includes the private library of Prof. Wilhelm Schäperclaus and part of the legacies of Prof. H. H. Wundsch and Prof. D. Scheer.
The library is a reference library, which is primarily available to the members of staff of the IfB, but also outside users. The library is a member of the German Special Libraries Association, Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Spezialbibliotheken.
