The MIZ provides you with several professional overhead scanners in the library. The pages of the documents are scanned from above with these devices (top view), which enables high-quality digitization of books and larger documents such as maps and drawings up to a size of DIN A3 without damaging the original. The scanners provide color scans and, if desired, OCR (text recognition makes the text copyable and searchable). The scanned data can, for example, be saved as multi-page PDF documents on a separate USB stick. If required, you can borrow USB sticks from the library's information desk.

In addition, flatbed scanners are available at some PCs in the library reading room. Some of these devices can also be used to scan slides.


Multifunctional devices are available on the university campus for printing and copying.

In order to use the MIZ printing service, you will need a Leuphana Card and sufficient credit on it in addition to your Leuphana Account. You can print via the public computers (printer selection "grayscale" or "color"), as well as via your own Windows laptop. The latest Q-Pilot printer driver must be downloaded beforehand.

Our plotting service can handle large format prints.
