Express Document Delivery

Our Express Document Delivery Service (Express-Dok) is provided to TU staff who hold a valid library card. It allows you to procure journal articles and partial copies of books, which are not available in the holdings of the TU Berlin.

The service is made possible through cooperation with subito. With Express-Dok you can order journal articles and partial copies of books online straight from your desk.


There are no charges, all costs are covered by the University Library.

TU staff can place up to 50 orders per month(subject to further budget development of the University Library). Additional orders via this service are not possible. However, irrespective of the free TU Express-Dok service, subito's fee-based services can be used at any time.

The service is only available for orders of journal articles and partial copies of books, not for borrowing books.
