Library and Information Science, Book Studies

De Gruyter is Germany’s foremost library and information science publisher and is also a significant player on the international stage. This is down to our long-standing collaboration with the IFLA and our highly regarded Green Back series.

In German-speaking countries, our handbooks and journals provide invaluable support to librarians in their day-to-day work. Our list also contains interdisciplinary works in the fields of book studies, information science, and publishing, along with key reference works.
