Your Library—More Than Just Books

Digital Book Resource

We have recently digitized a number of books in our library. While the digital versions are not available online, you can access them from a PC in our library. You can also transfer them from the PC to a USB stick.
There aren’t very many digitial books yet - as we have to scan them manually - but the number is growing.
Can you provide us with a digital version of a library book (only from our library) you might have scanned once?
Please tell us, which book(s) you would you like us to scan and offer in a digitial version?

Secondary Publication Right

German law grants authors of published articles to post a manuscript version of their works online 12 months after their initial publication. This applies to articles that have appeared after 1/1/2014 and that meet some special requirements - most of them fulfilled by scientists in the MPG.
Please provide us with the last manuscript version of your article so that we can publish it on the MPG Publication Repository.

Did You Know?

Under Horizon 2020, each beneficiary must ensure open access to all peer-reviewed scientific publications relating to its results.
In order to comply with this requirement, beneficiaries must, at the very least, ensure that their publications, if any, can be read online, downloaded and printed. However, as any additional rights such as the right to copy, distribute, search, link, crawl, and mine increase the utility of the accessible publication,
beneficiaries should make every effort to provide for as many of them as possible.
