Research in the Reading Room

At the International Tracing Service (ITS) there are reading rooms available with a total of 19 computer work stations. Most of the holdings have been digitized and can be viewed in the digital archive of the ITS.

For organizational reasons it is important for the user to first complete a research request form and then arrange an appointment time for their visit. This is also necessary in order to provide visitors with an introduction into the use of the databank and to demonstrate the research paths available.

Of course, those collections that have not yet been digitized can also be used. In this case, some additional preparation time must be planned for.

Opening hours of the reading rooms:

Monday through Thursday: 8.00 - 17.00
Friday: 8.00 - 13.00
