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

Searches are possible again

Our office in Cologne-Ehrenfeld is open again for visitors due to the changed Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (as of 20.08.2021).

Research in our archive as well as in the library is possible for two persons at the same time. Pre-registration must be made using this form https://domid.org/recherche/archiv/. Please do not show up until we have confirmed your appointment. In addition, a proof of immunity (vaccination or recovery) or a negative coronal test issued by an official testing center and not older than 24h must be shown (3G 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.
