The SBB Webshop offers the possibility to request reproductions of collection materials of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin when you are not actually at the library. This possibility exists only for copyright-free materials and media, which are suitable for scanning because of their conservative status and their size. The order is always made directly via the Web Shop of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.
Please note the library`s List of Charges.
If you are inside the library you can order the digitization of book-excerpts or single images at the Bibliocopy-counter if you provide the book. With our form "Reproauftrag" you can specify the pages you require, file formats and the way of delivery. Digitalization for personal use only, suitable for serial originals such as books. Max size of originals is DIN A2.
