Objective

This specific project was undertaken together with four other newspaper digitisation pilot projects aimed at processing all German newspapers of the 17th century as well as a small selection of German newspapers of the 18th to the 20th centuries. In the “Further development of the ZDB as steering and research instrument for newspaper digitisation projects and for newspapers” project a new ZDB web catalogue was created with a modern und user-friendly interface and additional functions for newspaper research and for managing digitising projects. A first beta version of the new ZDB web catalogue was made available at: http://beta.zdb-opac.de/zdb.
