Our documentation center is open to all interested parties, by appointment. However, the use of the collection requires a visit at DOMiD in person. Here at DOMiD, the FAUST database system is used for research. We give every visitor an introduction to the database and its different search functions. Materials may be viewed in our reading room, and it is possible to make copies.

Unfortunately we are not able to provide any research services. For preliminary research, our online indexes are available for download.

Your visit

Researches in our archive are possible - with restrictions!

Due to the amended Corona Protection Ordinance of the NRW state government, valid from Friday, 14.07.2021, searches in the archive are again offered at DOMiD, but only limited for three persons and after prior appointment via the online form below. Due to the pandemic, there may be waiting times. In addition, a negative coronary test issued by an official test center and not older than 24 hours must be presented. On site, the existing hygiene rules apply, including keeping your distance, washing and disinfecting your hands, and wearing a mask, as well as collecting contact information.

If you have any questions regarding the use of the archive, please contact us by e-mail at service@domid.org or beate.rieple@domid.org.
