1,000th history book is available online in digital form

The GEI-Digital project has digitised its 1,000th book: the project was launched in 2009 to digitise history textbooks from the German imperial period (1871-1918) and make them available online to researchers and the general public.

The current project phase will run until June 2012 and aims to digitise approximately 1,750 history textbooks from the period and make them available online.

Collections from external libraries will also be digitised during this phase of the project: the Berlin State Library and Research Library for the History of Education have contributed the most comprehensive holdings.

Subsequent project phases will undertake the digitisation of books published prior to 1870 as well as textbooks for subjects other than history, such as geography or the natural sciences.
