The present project was developed in the context of the long-term project “Digitalization of the DFG (German Research Society) special subject fields”. It concentrates on the digitalization of literature not in public domain, predominantly in the field of humanities and social sciences with an emphasis on monographs.Digi20 has content relating to the ancient word in a variety of subject areas, for example:
In the first phase of the project, approx. 4700 titles of programme segments of the publishers Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Wilhelm Fink / Ferdinand Schöningh as well as Otto Sagner were digitized. In a second phase, further approx. 1750 titles are being included till 2014 by consecutively digitizing all monographs up to a defined ‘Moving Wall’ of three to five years to the current year of publication.
Corresponding arrangements with publishing houses, who act in agreement with their authors, enable the BSB to digitize works protected by copyright and to provide accessibility according to the guidelines of the DFG via Open Access.
The Website provides a full-text search of the entire collection or of the single subject collections. All titles are also accessible with the OPAC of the Bavarian State Library. The inclusion in professionally relevant virtual subject libraries is in preparation.
