Inaugurata la Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek

Il 28 novembre 2012 è stato inaugurato in versione beta il bellissimo portale Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek, che raccoglie il patrimonio culturale tedesco in formato digitale garantendo accesso libero a milioni di documenti (testi, immagini, documenti audio, documenti video).

Importante: ogni documento è rappresentato da un record catalografico che contiene il link alla risorsa digitale integrale disponibile sui repositories delle singole istituzioni. Si consiglia di selezionare sempre il link: Data provider’s object view.

Il progetto, in corso d’opera, coinvolge più di 1.800 istituzioni tedesche.

Dalla pagina di presentazione del progetto:

The goal of the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek (DDB) is to offer everyone unrestricted access to Germany’s cultural and scientific heritage, that is, access to millions of books, archived items, images, sculptures, pieces of music and other sound documents, as well as films and scores, from all over Germany. As a central, national portal, the DDB is aiming to bring together and network digital content from all of Germany’s cultural and scientific institutions.

This first, publicly available beta version already offers an impression of the possibilities which the DDB will open up. The portal is continuously expanding with new functions, the number of participating cultural and scientific institutions is constantly growing – and with them, the amount of accessible virtual content.
