Ordering prints

Books can be ordered via the library's WEB-OPAC. The required library card with access data will be issued after registration. As soon as the ordered work is ready, it receives the status "Theke Bibl. d. Franckeschen Stiftungen" in the user account. Books that are not yet catalogued in the OPAC can be ordered in the reading room by means of a loan slip.

Ordering archival documents

Archival records can be ordered on site or by e-mail. Archival records that are indexed in the archive database can also be pre-ordered using the order function available there:
