BSB offers document deliveries in PDF to German customers

17. May 2017

Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (BSB), Munich, extends its delivery scope via FIZ AutoDoc and now offers e-mail delivery in plain PDF from selected publishers to German customers. The documents will be scanned either in black/white quality (text only documents) or in color (if required, e.g., for images, charts, etc.). At present more than 50,000 ISSNs are available in this user-friendly and competitively priced delivery format.

Price information: The document delivery costs consist of the regular service fee (e.g., 11.90 € + VAT for Standard Speed) plus the VG Wort copyright royalty (12.00 € + VAT).

Benefits: Document delivery in plain PDF from more than 50,000 ISSNs, no DRM, lower priced than documents ordered via international document suppliers.

To benefit from this enhanced delivery option, we recommend you to set the default delivery format to “PDF” and to permanently activate “View all formats” in the “User Settings -> Order Details” menu. In case a document cannot be delivered in PDF, all alternative order formats will be offered.

Please note: This service is available to German customers only!


Example: Order details page for a document to be delivered via BSB Munich in plain PDF.
