Document Delivery "Old Book"

The Document Delivery Service "Old Book" prepares copies of items which are excluded from the "standard document delivery" upon request and against a charge. This applies mainly to copies and scans from newspapers and older and rare printed works. By placing your order you agree to bear all costs incurred. The reproductions are delivered in the form of paper copies or DVDs, in the form of an Internet download or on a USB Stick. The major part of the holdings, including Maps and Pictures, Manuscripts and Modern Papers (please state the purpose of use), can thus be made available. Please note that there are nevertheless items of which no reproductions can be produced, and that we cannot guarantee a fixed period of delivery, since these parts of the holdings need to be treated with great care for reasons of conservation. However, we endeavour to provide you with the ordered copies as fast as possible, as a rule within four weeks after placement of order/receipt of payment. This service is also available to non-registered library users.
The products are delivered as mere copies without any further processing. However, further processing is possible, in particular if delivery is made in the form of a reproducible digital colour copy. If you wish to have your copy further processed, you can contact any copy shop of your choice.
