Special Collections

Visual materials. As part of its new open science policy (in German), the ZHB Lucerne makes the digital and digitised cultural heritage in its holdings - as far as possible - accessible free of charge. Therefore, scans of images (photos, prints, etc.) will no longer be charged. However, in the spirit of good scholarly practice, the ZHB Lucerne Special Collection expects that when digitised material is used, the source is fully acknowledged
