In light of the circumstances brought on by the novel coronavirus, the University Library has launched a new copyright-compliant scanning service in time for the start of the new semester on April 20th. This is an additional measure to complement of the significant expansion of the range of electronic media offered by the library. This service will temporarily bridge the gap until the library’s borrowing facilities and reading rooms can once again be made accessible to students.
In urgent cases, members of the University can make use of a free scanning service. Additionally, media from the University Library's holdings can be sent to academic staff members by internal mail. For scanning and delivery services, we ask that teaching/research assistants and lecturers contact their respective specialist teams directly or by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and doctoral candidates are requested to use the form below.
Scan jobs for content that is available in electronic form on the university network will not be processed by the scanning service. Please, therefore, check in advance whether online access is available for your needed documents, for example using the Primo search portal.
When using the scanning service, the following copyright regulations apply:
- The scanning service can only scan printed works that are in the University Library's holdings.
- For journals and similar specialised periodicals, only individual articles will be scanned.
- For books (e.g. textbooks, monographs, anthologies), a maximum of 10 percent of the relevant work will be scanned.
Scan jobs from students about to sit their final exams and from doctoral candidates are prioritised. The scans will be saved in PDF format and sent to your university e-mail address.
