When to place a repro-order

If you place a repro-order, ULB takes care of copying / scanning and processing of the ordered pages and scans. You should place a repro-order if

  • you need copies out of old, sensitive or precious books. These mostly are subject to a prohibition of (self-)copying.
  • you need voluminous material or a lot of scans and do not want to copy them yourself.
  • you need pre-press reproduction quality.
  • large formats, maps, plans or other special material is concerned

Copyrighted material can only be delivered partially or might be completely restricted from digitziation.
