The British Library and the Library, London School of Economics and Political Science, hold a wide selection of national government publications from Germany.
The following guides to German documents have been devised as a result of a collaborative project between the British Library and the Library, London School of Economics and Political Science, focusing on the information output of Western European governments.
The German guides indicate the main series of government publications held by the British Library and the Library, London School of Economics and Political Science. Selected legal holdings of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Library are also included in these pages. Much information is now being published via the web and some key sites have been highlighted.
The three German guides are of the following governments:
- Allied Control Council and Zonal Administrations (1945-1949) (PDF format, 150KB)
- German Democratic Republic (1949-1990) (PDF format, 90KB)
- Federal Republic of Germany (1949-) (PDF format, 237KB)
Procedures for admission to the collaborating libraries to access the collections are explained on their respective websites.
