The MPDL Advisory Board supports and advises the President, the accountable Vice Presidents, the Secretary General and the Max Planck Digital Library on the Max Planck Society's strategy relating to electronic scientific media and tools and the Society's open access policy.

The MPDL Advisory Board also forges a link between the Max Planck Digital Library and the sections, i.e. the institutes, and other involved units of the Max Planck Society. In addition, it is responsible for other tasks relating to the Max Planck Digital Library, including supporting and advising the Library on its ongoing duties and preparing reports on joint applications for central project financing by institutes and the Max Planck Digital Library.

The MPDL Advisory Board was appointed on June 17, 2010 by the Senate of the Max Planck Society. On January 1, 2012 it took its place within more than a decade of tradition represented by the Steering Committee of the Scientific Information Services Program of the Max Planck Society (LA sInfo, 2004-2011) and the preceding Advisory Committee on Information Provision (BI, 1999-2003). Among other duties, the MPDL Advisory Board now carries on the work of its predecessors.

Since July 1, 2017
