The HRZ offers scanning facilities


The University Computer Centre offers digitisation options for scanning documents or even larger formats. These differ according to the size of the original.

For whom?

Members of the University of Bonn

Employees and students can make use of the service within the scope of research and teaching. Students, however, can only submit requests through a member of their faculties teaching staff.
Use is free of charge.

What for?


    If documents, plans or maps need to be digitised, scanning is usually a suitable procedure, which, in contrast to photography, offers low-threshold access to high-quality reproduction. For this purpose, various devices are available at the HRZ, which can be used either as a self-service or as an order.

    How does it work?

    For small-format scans, a workstation with a scanner is available in the university computer centre, where reproductions can be made independently. The maximum size for these scans is DIN A4. These scans are free of charge.

    Detailed information on the prices for large-format scans can be found in the HRZ docu.

    Large format scans

    For larger scans, the HRZ has a large format scanner. Scan orders on this device are carried out by the staff of the computer centre and can be booked via the linked form. Invoicing is always done via a PSP element. Cash payment is not possible.


    Detailed information and instructions can be found in the HRZ-Doku.
