Stillleben mit Globus und Büchern

The Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung (BBF) was founded in 1876 and is an international research library. Since 1992 it has been affiliated with the Deutsches Institut für Internationale Pädagogische Forschung. With a collection of more than 700,000 items it is Europe's second largest library specialised in education. By virtue of its unique collection, the BBF was integrated into the system set up by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) comprising libraries with special collections. Its acquisitions cover works on the history of education in German-speaking countries, making it one of the 46 German libraries with a special collection or specialised libraries which, to all intents and purposes, fulfil the role of a German national library.
In addition to its library, documentation and archive functions, the library has gained recognition as a centre of communication for historical research in education, hosting regular conferences and exhibitions.
Lastly, working closely with the Forschungsstelle Berlin and other departments of the Deutsches Institut für Internationale Pädagogische Forschung, we regard it as our task, given the nature of this collection, to promote research and carry out our own research projects.
