The Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut (IAI, Ibero-American Institute) is a multi-disciplinary, non-university institution of the humanities, cultural sciences, and social sciences. Its regional focus is Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain, and Portugal, while it also incorporates transregional interrelationships. The library of the IAI is the largest European library focusing on these regions. It offers its services in the Reading Room in Berlin, but also independent of location, e.g. large databases, e-books, e-journals, digital objects and the international interlibrary loan. The Specialized Information Service offers tools and data for researchers.
