Reproduction of library material

The copy office and the digitization center of the University Library make reproductions from library-owned materials.

What kind of material will be reproduced?

We reproduce mainly materials that have to stay within the library, meaning those that can only be used inside the library (LSA, LSN, MMZ) and cannot be reproduced by users themselves.

Please note that material which is subject to copyright may be reproduced not at all or only in parts.


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