With the motto "the asylum for critical thoughts", Azil Bookshop is the first Slovene bookshop to specialise in theory and reference books related to the social sciences and the humanities, especially sociology, philosophy, archaeology, psychology, anthropology and the arts. It offers numerous books published by international publishing houses (including many American, British, German, French, Serbian and Croatian ones), along with titles published by Slovene publishing houses specialising in the humanities and by several publishing houses of universities and research institutions.

Azil Bookshop was established in October 2003 by the Scientific Research Centre (ZRC SAZU), Slovene Academy of Science and Arts, next door to the centre's premises near Ljubljana's National and University Library (NUK). They offer a discount on books published by ZRC Publishing for members of their book club. The bookshop also allows customers to place orders on books published by Azil's international associates that are not currently in stock.

Azil Bookshop organises several book presentations and innovative reading and cultural promotion events like the "Books in Motion" or "Azil Open Term". Together with the Divja misel ("Wild Thought") Institute the Azil organises the "Library under the Trees" which takes place in Ljubljana's Tivoli Park every summer from Friday to Sunday, and the children's programme "Frockarije" led by Maja Rijavec of KUD Smetumet. In summer 2008 the Azil Bookshop offered a special treat: comics.

Azil Bookshop co-manages also the recently opened bookshop in Museum of Modern Art.
