Also, the library fund contains 3 thousand books on electrical engineering from the personal library of B.P. Borisov, the corresponding member of the NAS of Ukraine; as well as sets of periodicals and continued editions for many years, incl. such journals as: “Electricity” (1908), “Power Stations” (since 1930), full set of the “Technical Electrodynamics” and “Works of the Institute of Electrodynamics of the NAS of Ukraine” since 1999.

In the reading room there is a number of permanent exhibitions, such as “New Arrivals”, “Publications of the Institute of Electrodynamics of the NAS of Ukraine”, “Autographed books from the authors”, “Books donated by the employees of the Institute of Electrodynamics”.
The S&T library of the Institute cooperates and exchanges books, scientific works, journals etc. with the libraries of the NAS of Ukraine and libraries of the universities in Kyiv, Lviv, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Vinnytsa, Dnipro, and Kremenchug.
