Scan, copy, and print
SuUB Bremen offers free scanning facilities at the central library on the university campus and at the larger branch libraries. Three Bookeye-scanners are available in the central library and in the law library. In addition, scan tents are available which can be used in connection with a scan app or a camera app on a smartphone. This service contributes to the switch from paper to digital formats.
