The MEG Library - Bibliothèque Marie Madeleine Lancoux - offers a specialized collection in social and cultural anthropology.

It is devoted to societies on five continents and is complemented by the Georges Amoudruz collection dedicated to the Alpine arc and the Rhone valley furrow. The Library also conserves the books of the Swiss Society of Americanists (SSA). In addition, the MEG Library cultivates numerous exchanges with partner institutions. Approximately 60,850 documents and 1,500 periodical titles, 220 of which are currently subscribed, are open to the public.

The MEG Library also offers multimedia materials related to the Museum's collection - such as DVDs, CDs, comic strips and children's books.
