Digitisation Centre

The Digitisation Centre (DIC) as a working area of the department of Historical Collections coordinates and organises the Digital Collections Darmstadt, the Repro service (Digitisation on Demand) of the ULB, and all the services and infrastructure on this topic.

We have a comprehensive understanding of digitisation as a task that goes beyond purely scanning and, in addition to project planning, quality management, indexing and presentation of digital objects, also includes support with conservation projects and long-term archiving.

Along with the “old book”, we also feel responsible for the digitisation of new and non-book media, microforms, modern literature, audiovisual media, special materials and special collections.
