Using media in the reading room – Ordering reproductions

The collections of the Image Archive are particularly worthy of protection and may therefore be used exclusively in the Reading Room for Music, Maps and Images.

Large parts of the images from the collection of portraits and views and from the photographic archives are available in digital format. They can be searched and viewed in the OPAC of the Image Archive.

Ordering reproductions

For reproductions, these images can be made available in high-resolution quality under the conditions of use of the Image Archive. Also new digital copies can be produced. The use of the images is subject to authorisation and usually subject to a fee.
