The Abraham Geiger College Library is an academic reference library with focus on the fields of
- Jewish Liturgy, Jewish liturgical music
- Tanakh, rabbinic literature, responsa, Jewish law - Jewish Theology and Philosophy
- history of Liberal Judaism
The library is part of the network of Judaica libraries in the Federal States of Berlin and Brandenburg. Collections of all participating libraries are accessible through a conjoint search engine called VK Judaica and are issued at the cooperating library network Kooperativen Bibliotheksverbund. At present only part of the Abraham Geiger College collection is registered at the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC). The library catalogue can be searched in the Hebrew language and by using the transliteration according to DIN-Norm 31636 (February 2006).
The catalogue provides access through Library of Congress subject headings, those of the German Authority File, terms of the thesaurus of the Jewish Museum, Berlin and notations of different classification systems like the Elazar classification and the German Regensburger Verbundklassifikation.
The library is not open to the public. However, rare literature that is only accessible here can be viewed during office hours upon request. Search the library catalogue
