Indexing & Digitizing Projects

The BBF attributes high value to professionally indexing its holdings in depth, to facilitate researchers’ access to the material. It digitizes holdings that are particularly relevant for research purposes and makes them openly accessible in compliance with legislation. Furthermore, together with project partners the BBF is testing and developing Digital Humanities procedures to offer researchers added value beyond the mere "image", e.g. by converting the image to a text that can be processed or by providing techniques to annotate texts in virtual environments. You can find an overview of current and recently completed projects, most of which have received external funding.
