Pilot project on school wall maps of the Perthes Collection Gotha started

The pilot project DISPLAY for the digitization of large-format objects has been launched at the Thüringische Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Jena with funding from the Thuringian State Chancellery. Project partner is the Gotha Research Library of the university with the Perthes Collection Gotha.

Using a scanning technology that corresponds to the formats of the objects and enables their damage-free digitization, a workflow will be developed based on the school wall maps of the Perthes Collection. In the future, this workflow will also be used to digitize large-format objects of the Thuringian collection institutions that present their holdings in the state's Kulthura portal.
