eBooks on Demand (EOD)

The e-books on demand service enables you to order complete electronic copies of copyright-free books from the BiG’s inventory. This service involves costs.

You can place the respective digitalisation order via the on-line catalogue of the Alexandria network. It is possible to digitise a book,

  • if the title exists in the BiG and its condition permits digitisation
  • if the sought title is not subject to copyright
  • if for the respective title the ‘Order a digital copy’ link is displayed in the full view of a record:

EOD order from the Alexandria catalogue.

The order is given by e-mail with the EOD order form, which is presented after clicking on the EOD link.

In the catalogue the EOD link is automatically added to titles that are copyright-free. In rare cases it is possible that the EOD link is not displayed even though a title is no longer subject to copyright. For such special cases we provide an empty EOD order form. Digitisation orders will be carried out only for those titles not subject to copyright.
