Charles M. Cooper Library


UNU-MERIT maintains a specialised library which provides research and learning support to the research staff and PhD students of the institute. The collection is also open, as a reference library and study space, to users from affiliated institutes and universities, as well as the wider UNU research community.

The collection focuses primarily on the socio-economic aspects of technological change and innovation, with a special focus on developing countries. It consists of a growing collection of more then 3000 e-Journals, several e-Libraries and a number of other essential electronic resources, as well as a monograph collection of over 7500 titles.

The library was named after the founding director of UNU-INTECH, the UNU institute which merged with MERIT to become the present UNU-MERIT, Charles M. Cooper.
