You can make copies of books, documents and other source materials in the copy rooms in the reading rooms and on floor -1 whenever you need to. Microform scanners are located in Reading Room 1.

Copy room

Users can print from the computer pools by selecting the “Windows 10_UB_mit_Druckfunktion” profile. Click on “Lesesaal 2 - Pool Drucker” to print to Photocopier 3 in the copy room in Reading Room 2.

Please note that unprinted jobs will be automatically deleted from the photocopier’s job box after one hour.

Microform scanners and readers

The microform scanners in Reading Room 1 enable library users to scan microfiches and microfilms page by page. The files can be saved as (editable) images or text. The quality will very much depend on the source material.

There are microfiche and microfilm readers alongside the scanners.

It is free to use the scanners and readers.
