Print on Demand

The University Library does not currently offer its own print on demand service.

Until 2020, we had a cooperation with the provider tredition ( Under the label "Giessen University Library Publications", books could be published via tredition including ISBN.

Since 2021, however, you can create or submit a publication on your own responsibility via the main tredition website ( In our experience, tredition offers a good price-performance ratio and a good platform.

For technical reasons, however, the university library can no longer support the process directly. You work independently with your own account and conclude a contract directly with tredition for each work. Books published via tredition can be purchased via bookshops, but also via online retailers such as Amazon and tredition's own shop (

However, we will be happy to assist you as far as we can.
