MMF students have access to a very modern central main library of the Faculty of Economics and Business (BRuW), situated in the building of the School of Economics and Business (RuW); an information center located on the ground floor of the House of Finance; and highly developed electronic access to all major journals, periodicals, and databases in the fields of Economics, Finance, and other areas of Business Administration. Users will find approximately 160,000 books; active subscriptions to about 400 periodicals, newspapers and journals. In addition to back editions and newspapers, more than 1,000 microfilms are available. There are lots of areas for private and group study.

The Central Library of the University “Universitätsbibliothek Johann Christian Senckenberg” (UB) has emerged from the former Central Library of Frankfurt, the Central Library of the Goethe University and the “Senckenbergische Bibliothek”. With its large book stocks and collection, it is one of the most important scientific libraries in Germany.  

The House of Finance and the Faculty of Economics and Business buildings are well-equipped with modern computer technology and provide access to computer resources and to the internet for students. “PC Pools” are available for project research and for academic instruction. There are also teleconferencing facilities on site for use in teaching and research. All lecture halls are equipped with state-of-the-art projection facilities and internet access. 

The computers are connected to the internet with fiber optic cables. Software applications include Microsoft Office, Open Office, Sun JDK, EViews, SAS, SPSS, STATA, Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft Visio and Microsoft Access.

The Law and Economics Library is situated on the ground floor of the RuW building.
