Library Membership

The Library Membership is your key to the Peace Palace Library. Your Library Membership grants you access to the Library and its premises. You can borrow, reserve and/or renew books, journals and other printed Library resources. In addition, your Library Membership allows you online access to the Library's digital resources, such as databases, e-Books (platforms), and e-Journals. The Library's Licensed Databases and the PPL Open Databases are included when you purchase an annual Library Membership. With your Library Membership you can login to the website and enjoy all its features. You can find the Terms and Conditions for Online Content here.

The annual fee for a full Library Membership is € 50,00. To purchase a Library Membership, click on the red button on the right.
