Scanning Request

UB TU Berlin / M. Fuchs, CC BY 4.0

Our Service

TU staff and TU students may request book chapters and articles from journal holdings of the Central Library (without UdK holdings), the Architecture and Art Studies Department Library, the Physics Department Library, the Mathematics Library and the Economics and Management Library (DBWM) via our electronic delivery service. The desired articles are scanned and made accessible for download for 14 days.

Due to the unchanged high number of orders, we kindly ask you to place only up to 10 orders per day.

Conditions and Charges


  • for TU staff: free of charge
  • for TU students: currently free of charge


  • File is available on an FTP server 14 days for download.
  • Important: The download link you receive by e-mail, so you have to enter your e-mail address into your library account. On "My Account" you can check this entry if necessary.
