Digitisation service

Do you need digital recordings of our holdings? No problem!

Our services

We are happy to make digital recordings of our holdings. The technical equipment in our digitisation centre enables us to: 

  • Scan source material of up to A1 in size (594 mm x 841 mm) at a resolution of max. 600 ppi and a colour depth of up to 24 Bit.
  • Photograph documents of up to A2 in size using a digital camera (max. 21 MP).
  • Make copies of microfilms and microfiches. We cannot provide scans or print-outs of microforms.

Handling the source material with care is our top priority, which limits us in many cases. We also need to observe legal restrictions. We will complete your order as long as it is feasible from a technical, organisational and conservational perspective. We will publish the reproductions in our digital library.

Placing orders

You can order digital reproductions online. To do this, search for the title you need in Katalog plus and reserve a copy in the “Holdings info” tab.

Prices and fees

Creating reproductions is time-consuming and costs money. The prices and fees for reproduction services apply.

Using, citing and publishing material

If you have questions about using our reproductions, please refer to University Library Freiburg’s terms of use for digital content. If you plan to use them in a publication, please check how to correctly cite the works. In some circumstances, you may need permission to publish. We would be delighted to receive a deposit copy of your publication.
