A machine is available at the Library for self-service photocopying of books or scores. The machine must be used in accordance with the provisions of the Greek Law on copyright and the protection of literary and artistic property and may not be used for the production of multiple copies of publications protected under copyright. Prepayment is required by means of cards purchased at the Circulation Desk. Copies are made in size A4 and cost €0,08 each (Reproduction pricelist).

Under no circumstances can the part of a work reproduced through photocopying exceed in size 20% of the work’s total length and, in any case, a total of 10 pages of a volume. The same applies to printouts from the computers and the microfilm/microfiche reader of the library. Electronic resources are exempted. 

The Law gives the Library the right to deny a request for the reproduction of Library material, if it does not comply with the provisions of the law or the rules of the library. 

The reproduction of sound recordings and audio-visual material of the Library by whatever means is prohibited by the Law.
The use of photographic, cinematographic, video-recording, sound-recording or other reproduction devices is prohibited on library premises without the library’s prior written consent.
