The MIZ provides ten overhead scanners, not only in the Library, but also in the computer work room in Building 7 (C 7.019). The machine scans the documents from above (overhead scanning), which enables the document-friendly digitalisation of valuable books, colour maps and drawings up to size A2. The scanned data can be stored on a USB stick. If necessary, you can borrow USB sticks from the library information desk.

Flatbed scanners are available on some PCs in the library's reading room, as well as in the public workrooms in building 7. In some cases, these devices can also be used to scan transparencies (diapositives) (C 7.217/7.218).


Multifunctional printing and copying devices are available at all locations.

In order to use the printing service of the MIZ, you need the Leuphana Card  in addition to a Leuphana Account. You can print from the public computers (printer selection QPilot_sw or QPilot_color) as well as from your own laptop via the QPilot  interface.

In addition, you can copy or print documents in the library using  coins or the copy card purchased from VarioPaper. (Instructions).

In Building 7, the money on your old print card can still be used up for printing until further notice, but topping-up is no longer possible. 

Our plotting service can handle large format prints.
