In the age of digitization, also specialist literature is demanded in the form of ebooks. Digital or printed literature can be ordered via the FID and books from the inventory of the SUB Göttingen can be digitized. Order sheets and further information can be found here.

The SUB Göttingen maintains the Central Archive for German Mathematics Bequests with currently 60 collections of prominent mathematicians as, for instance, Carl Friedrich Gauß, Felix Klein, David Hilbert, Bernhard Riemann, Georg Cantor und Carl Runge. The FID aims the establishment of a digital archive for mathematics bequests in which the collections can be found online. A first foundation has already been laid.
