Reproduction of library material

What kind of material will be reproduced?

We provide paper copies and digital reproductions from volumes of our protected collections and from those books supplied by Interlibrary Loan which have to be used within our reading rooms if the material in question is in a condition too poor to be reproduced within our Reading Rooms (Lesesaal Altstadt or Lesesaal Neuenheim) or our Multimedia Centre (MMZ) by the reader himself/herself.


Material which is subject to copyright may be reproduced not at all or only in parts. This applies in particular to microfiche the rights on which are held by publishers.


Our range of products:

  • Paper copies (up to max. 50 copies, format of original: max. DIN A 4)
  • Duplications of our own microfilms
  • Digital reproductions

Prices for copies

  • Fees are based on library's fee regulations.
  • An invoice will be issued against a minimum fee of 5.00 EUR. Dispatch is not included.
