Students and academic staff can study a broad collections of books, journals, proceedings, and maps. The library originated thanks to gifts of some members of staff, other research institutes, friends or reciprocal printouts. The library comprises important Slovak geographic monographs, periodic journals, conference proceedings, atlases, and selected foreign publications. Further, it comprises historical and recent census statistical publications and software. There are over 7000 publications in the Institutional library.

The Institute also has a map archive comprising state topographic maps of the territory of Slovak Republic, ZM 1:200 000 - 1:10 000, technical-economic maps, ŠMO-5 1 :5 000, various historical maps, several sectors of cadastral maps and 1:1000 maps. The map archive also holds a complete collection of geological maps in 1:200 000 scale for the territory of Slovakia and Czech Republic, and 1:50000 geological maps of Slovak Republic with explanations.
