German Digital Library Information provision

Service Description

The German Digital Library (DDB) opens up free access via the Internet to Germany's cultural and scientific heritage, i.e. to millions of books, archival materials, pictures, sculptures, pieces of music and other audio documents, films and sheet music.

As a cultural and scientific institution in Germany, you can supply data to the DDB or, as a curator, present the objects in the context of an exhibition theme .

To make digitized content available, you must register on the DDB website. Registration is free of charge.

As a central national portal, the DDB is intended to network the digital offerings of all German cultural and scientific institutions in the future. So far, more than 4,000 institutions have registered, and around 400 institutions are already supplying data.

Digitization is a process that is scheduled to take years. The portal's functions are being continuously expanded.

The DDB is jointly financed by the federal and state governments on the basis of the Administration and Finance Agreement of December 2009.
