The catalogues appear via automatized OCR (Optical Character Recognition) as searchable full texts and are enhanced by convenient navigation options, including: an index with individually selectable headlines; a full size panel, a means to zoom and rotate the document for detailed viewing at different levels of magnification, and a print function. All documents are made available as pdf files for downloading. All digitized objects are quotable via persistent URLs and URNs.
The original paper documents were digitized and published online centrally by Heidelberg University Library through a robust and long-established internal workflow built using the internally developed software pipeline DWork – Heidelberger Digitalisierungsworkflow.All procedures follow the guidelines stipulated by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
