The reference library of the Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict (IFHV) contains 20 current journals and more than 2.570 monographs. Since autumn 2009 its complete inventory has been integrated into the virtual library catalogue OPAC at Ruhr-University Bochum.

This enables library users to search for information online, not only regarding subjects such as international law, international humanitarian law and human rights law, but also adjacent scientific fields and disciplines of humanitarian studies.
