Library


The library will be closed from
29 July -- 19 August 2016


We moved to Universitätsstraße 105!

On the 1st of June, 2016 the Institute of Development Research and Development Policy, and thus the institute library as well, moved to a new location in the building Universitätsstrasse 105.
Unfortunately, we could only take a relatively small number of books to that location, most books had to remain in the former IEE library rooms in GB 1/147.
After our move, there will be a thorough PCB-cleansing of the floor GB 1 South, so that these rooms will not be accessible for some months.
After the restoration, this part of our library will of course be opened again as well.




The library of the IEE is a reference library. Books and journals can be taken out for a short while for copying purposes, but during the semester terms lending is only possible for weekends or overnight. During the holidays, a longer lending period is possible. There are working places within the library. The institute's library is open to everyone interested in developing studies, so people and institutions do not need to belong to the Ruhr University Bochum to use the library.


Opening Hours


  • Monday to Thursday: ca. 9:00 – 16:00 h
  • Friday: ca. 9:00 – 15:00 h

The library can be closed for half to one hour for lunch breaks;
from Monday to Thursday it's usually opened longer than 16:00 h.

German Afghanistan Archive


During the cooperation between the University of Kabul and the Universities of Bochum, Bonn and Cologne, the library's titles about and from Afghanistan increased so much that they were taken out of the normal library and the German Afghanistan Archive was founded.

The Afghanistan Archive is one of the biggest collections of literature about and from Afghanistan in Germany. It contains monographs, anthologies, statistics, maps, journals and newspapers as well as many unspecific titles and newspaper clips about Afghanistan.

Contrary to the institute library, the Afghanistan Archive can't be accessed by the users themselves. It is strictly a reference library.


ADB Depository Library


Since January 1994, the IEE library has been participating in the Depository Library Programme of the Asian Development Bank.
