Photocopies, scans, photos

The EFR Library provides readers with a photocopy service furnished by Library staff. The service respects Italian copyright law (maximum authorised: 15% of the total number of pages of a book).

We'd like to inform users that at the Library it is not possible to print (from USB key, E-mail or PC). Only the photocopy service is available.

Any reproduction of one of the Library’s documents is subject to authorisation. Such authorisation can be refused depending on the age and physical condition of the document in question.

Photocopy price: €0.20 per page

The use of the scanner at the entrance to the Library is for free.  

However, all requests for scans must be made to the Library staff. Forms are all the same for every type of reproduction, and they are available down on this page or at the Banco room at the library.
