Scan Service

We will be happy to scan documents from our holdings for you in various text and image formats and send the scanned material to you via email free of charge. Please use the Göttingen University Catalogue (GUK) to find the items you need and send us an email with the list of your titles including page references. Please also let us know when you will need the scans.
