The library has an important collection of Romanian law periodicals from the interwar period, as well as a valuable fund of French law from the 19th century, both from private donations.

The process of developing the document base i s subordinated to the requirements of the specific users of the Library of the Romanian Diplomatic Institute, interested in deepening their university studies and research. The acquisition strategy from the domestic and international publishing market takes into account objective criteria resulting from the broad consultation of employees, teaching staff and students of the Romanian Diplomatic Institute.

Publications are retrieved automatically by browsing the online catalogue at the IDR library. The automated information system is provided through the implementation of the Softlink Alice library software.

Individuals outside the MFA and those who belong to institutions with whom the Romanian Diplomatic Institute has not yet established partnership agreements may have access to the library’s document collections based on a request addressed to the board of the Romanian Diplomatic Institute.
