The Educational Research Library in Frankfurt (FFB) is the institute’s own library; it is responsible for providing employees in both Berlin and Frankfurt with the scientific literature and information they need. The Library is one of the major libraries with a special focus in Germany and is thus open to the public. For more than 60 years, the FFB has been an elementary part of the library landscape in the Rhine-Main region, thus contributing to the guarantee of free access to scientific information in the fields of educational research and educational science for scientists and practitioners as well as anyone with a special interest in the field.

Three areas of tasks are served by the Communications Office: public relations, internal reporting and reporting to the governing board.

The Central Services department at DIPF provides general services to staff working at the Institute.
