Document delivery service
The Document delivery service (Direktversand von Kopien) allows users to order black-and-white (hard) copies of essays, articles and extracts from books, journals and other documents held by the German National Library. This is possible in cases where the German National Library is the sole documented library in Germany in possession of the resource in question.
The orderer is responsible for checking the ownership documentation:
- in the KVK - Karlsruher Virtual Catalogue for monographs
- in the ZDB - German Union Catalogue of Serials for serial publications, i.e. journals and newspapers
Publications documented as being owned by other libraries in Germany should be ordered via the separate document delivery service SUBITO.
Due to current copyright law, since 1.1.2008 the German National Library has only offered postal or fax delivery of its "Document delivery service" within Germany.
