Further collections available online

Following the successful digitisation between 2009 and 2012 of history textbooks and history atlases from the German imperial period, further collections are currently being made available online.

The digitisation of over 800 geography textbooks dating from the period between 1871 and 1918 was the focus of the project during 2012 and 2013, augmenting the current collection of books from the German imperial period.

In the second half of 2013 the project team will embark upon the digitisation of school textbooks for the natural sciences, geography and history dating from the earliest examples of formal school textbooks up until 1871. The project team are also planning to expand the much in demand collection of history atlases by adding the collection of geography atlases which contain fascinating maps from diverse historical periods.

The release of further collections enables the GEI-Digital platform to make an even broader range of digitised textbooks available to the public and to researchers.

The second phase of the project, sponsored by the DFG, started in the middle of 2012 and the team has so far digitised 200,000 pages. The full-text recognition application enables researchers to search for historical terms.
