Duplication Services
If you intend to use one of the microfilm scanners or reader/printers, we recommend that you make a reservation in advance, as they are in high demand.
By using one of these devices you can easily produce scans or paper copies yourself. The latter is available in two sizes (DIN A 4, DIN A 3) and will cost you 0.30 Euro/copy. Please bring your own digital storage media if you intend to use CDs or USB flash drives.
Please note that regarding the duplication of any other material restrictions may apply, depending on the condition of the original.
You will find further details in our information sheet on Duplication Services. For information on service fees please check the library’s current price list.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
As part of the Berlin State Library‘s collection its children’s and adolescents’ books are available through national and international ILL. Orders may be placed by filling out conventional paper forms or by using the GBV Common Library Network’s online ILL option.
