EOD eBook and its additional functionalities

Your requested eBook is carefully scanned using special book scanners at a high resolution. Then the digital images are merged into a single file in PDF format.

  • Use your standard software (Adobe Acrobat Reader), to read the eBook on-screen, zoom into the image or navigate through the book.
  • Print single pages or the entire book.

Additionally you can benefit from automatic text recognition!
A special process of automatic text recognition is applied after your requested book is scanned. You will benefit from additional functionalities like:

  • Use the full text search of individual terms.
  • Copy the images and parts of the text to other applications (e.g. word processors).
  • Save the entire text as a text file and edit it.

Price: EUR 9.55 + 0.13 / page

In case of postal delivery of CD/DVD ROM, additional postage fee is added to the eBook price.

All prices include 20% VAT

Additional information regarding your order

  • Older books published before 1800 and medieval manuscripts are also digitised on request. The price is, however, also specified in detail and goes by the condition and value of the book. In such cases, we will inform you in time and provide you with an unbinding quote.
  • We wish to point out that automatic text recognition (OCR) does not fully provide perfect results and inaccuracies can occur especially with older books.
  • eBooks are imported by us into the NLE's digital archive DIGAR and will be long-term preserved.
  • By ordering you accept the Terms and Conditions.

Payment options

Benefit from the various options of online payment:

  • Direct payment by all leading credit cards providers (Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club, American Express), Maestro or Paypal.
  • Payment by invoice. You will receive the precise details you need for your transfer after placing your order directly on your personal EOD customer page.
  • Payment in cash (in the National Library of Estonia)


Shipment schedule: We endeavour to digitise and ship the book within two weeks. This, however, requires the physical presence of the book in the library. For longer shipment schedules we will inform you immediately.  
Shipment options: Normally, our eBook will be available to you to download via the Internet immediately after payment. This link exists for two months. Thus you can immediately work with your eBook.  

You can also choose shipment on a data carrier (CD-ROM or DVD, depending on the size of the file), subject to a surcharge:

  • Estonia: 2.30 EUR
  • Europe: 6.00 EUR
  • Other countries worldwide: 8.00 EUR
