Digitising special material

Utrecht University Library has its own 'production line' with three scanners for scanning and digitising library material.

All of our 750 medieval manuscipts have been digitised in this way and made online available. In addition, as part of the Metamorfoze Project of the Dutch Royal Library all the material published between 1850 and 1950 is being digitised.

Requesting scans

Is the item you need not digitised yet? Please submit a request to have it scanned by sending an email to library@uu.nl. We will attend to your request and will inform you of the several options and costs (if any).
