Additional information regarding your order

We wish to point out that automatic text recognition (OCR) does not fully provide perfect results and inaccuracies can occur especially with older books.

  • By ordering you accept the Terms and Conditions.
  • Public domain books or books for which we receive a declaration of consent from the author or publishing houses are imported by us into the University Library of Greifwald's digital library and are thus globally available and also long-term preserved.
  • Manuscripts and other rare books published before 1600 are also digitised on request. The price is, however, also specified in detail and goes by the condition and value of the books (according the regulation of charges of the University Library of Greifswald). In such cases, we will inform you in time and provide you with an unbinding cost estimation.
