Copying services and document delivery services
Via subito copies of journal articles or from books can be ordered for delivery to the address stated by the user. This service is based on the collections of the libraries taking part in subito, which can be searched online in the subito catalogues. From the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek alone, you can order copies from around 54,000 journals and 10 million books.
subito's service is available to anyone upon free registration on the subito website.
Copies of articles from journals or books can be ordered subsequent to your title search in the subito catalogues.
A subito order can be placed using the button "Copy via subito (€)" in the result list of OPACplus/ BSB catalogue.
Free-of-charge provision of tables of contents
In case you do not have any exact literature specifications or do not know the exact page numbers, we currently offer an additional service. We send you the table of contents of the required volume by e-mail free of charge within a few days. With the aid of the table of contents, you can subsequently place a qualified copy order via interlibrary loan or subito. For this purpose, please fill in the form.
Books and copies can be ordered via interlibrary loan. For delivery, the free-of-charge book delivery to your address should be used primarily. If needed, on-site collection is possible within the click & collect service hours. Please note that media for circulation in the reading rooms only cannot be used presently and cannot be sent to you either.
Information on book delivery to your address
Since libraries currently do not all participate in the interlibrary loan system, a higher number of cancellations may possibly occur.
