Free access to knowledge and the opportunity for open discussion are always among our main goals in our work. To this end, we also run a library that primarily collects printed works on freedom in all its diversity, including our core areas of digitalization, law and rights, and also hacker culture. Our library is growing continuously and collects especially also publications of hackerspaces and alternative educational institutions and initiatives.
Our library used to be accessible to the public in our Technology and Human Rights Hub in Berlin and the OpenLab Augsburg, and is organized as “hacklib” on Librarything. We are interested in handing over the library to a new location and caretaker; please get in touch if this sparks your imagination.
For several years, a selected section of our library was part of the Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg.
