The Library of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights collects first and foremost publications regarding human rights and liberties and constitutionalism. We also hold collections of legal regulations (including collections of official journals "Dziennik Ustaw" and "Monitor Polski"), along with commentary, as well as a sizeable reference library.
The book collection includes ca. 4600 volumes of books and 260 Polish and foreign periodical titles, regularly supplemented by new ones.
The reading room is open to the public - everyone interested can take advantage of it. There are inter alia 2 computer stations with Internet access at their disposal. There is an opportunity to benefit from the computer-based Legal Information System LEX. Publications and information collections are made available on the spot. A Library employee offers to the readers with regard to the contents.
The Foundation Library maintains contact with other libraries throughout the country (inter alia with the National Library, university libraries, libraries of law faculties, as well as other scientific libraries).
