Reproduction service

You can’t find what you’re looking for in our digital library FulDig, or you need high-resolution image files from our historic stock for academic purposes or work on local history?
For a fee, you can place an order with our reproduction service.

Wich documents can be reproduced?

You can order reproductions of manuscripts and old prints if this is possible from a conservational, technical or legal point of view. If this is not the case, we will have to reject your digitisation request.

How can I place an order?

Please use our order form (deutsch, english) and send it by email to or in printed form by mail or fax to the University and State Library Fulda.

Please use a separate form for each document.

What are the reproduction formats?

Images from our historic stock are provided as TIFF files via download link (€3) or on a USB flash drive (€8 + €3 shipping costs).

What do I have to bear in mind?

Please note that some works cannot be digitalised for conservational, technical or legal reasons, so your order will have to be rejected.

After the scans have been made, you – the client – are responsible for complying with copyright regulations (rights of personality) and rights of use.

Please complete the order form. Orders with incomplete information cannot be processed.

What do I have to remember with items from interlibrary loan?

Digital reproductions of items from the interlibrary loan service which are subject to a copy ban are only possible with the consent of the lending library.
Please contact the service desk at the Heinrich-von-Bibra-Platz location.

What are the costs?

A processing fee of 5,00€ is charged for each reproduction order.
Please specify how you wish to receive the reproduction and the number of pages you are ordering so that final price can be calculated.
