On 4 November 2016 the GHIL celebrated its 40th anniversary. On this occasion we would like to thank our colleagues and friends who supported us and our work over the last four decades. An exhibition on the institute’s history is on public display at the GHIL until 31 January 2017.
Please note that there will be restricted access to some library holdings
(German history 1871-1945) on Friday 2nd December from about 3pm.
Books from these holdings will still be available but may have to be fetched
by library staff. Please also note that we will close at 3pm on
Tuesday 20th December.
Christmas Closure: The GHIL Library will be closed for an extended
period over Christmas this year to allow for an extensive reshuffle of most
of our holdings.
The Library will be closed from 23rd December to 13th January. We will reopen
on 16th January but please be aware that the basement area will be closed to
readers as stock reorganisation will still be taking place. Staff may be able
to fetch books from holdings in the basement but access cannot be guaranteed.
