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 only possible with restrictions

Due to the amended Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (as of 24.11.2021), our office in Cologne-Ehrenfeld is only open to one person at a time for archive research.

Pre-registration must be made using the form below. Please do not appear until we have confirmed the appointment. In addition, proof of immunity (vaccination or recovery) must be shown (2G regulation). On site, the known hygiene rules apply. These include keeping your distance, washing and disinfecting your hands, and wearing a mask, and taking contact information.

For questions regarding archive use, please email service@domid.org or beate.rieple@domid.org.
