Digitization support with the open source product Goobi

Brief summary:



I’ll give an short overview about Zeutschel’s digitization portfolio.

The main subject is the open source software Goobi for planning, managing, controlling, metadata capturing and presenting digital collections. The software was originally developed for Libraries and financed by the German Research Association (DFG). The ongoing developments today are including requirements for archives also.

Another topic is the software MyBib eL which enables institutions to present copyright material based on the legal conditions.

Also the combination of Goobi and MyBib eL I’ll show.

A last subject is a new way to present historical and valuable books in 3D based on 2D scans. The product 3D-Explorer is a development of the German Fraunhofer Research Institution and Zeutschel.

So as you can see this is not really an academic presentation but very practical life. I’m using also examples from existing installations.

About Goobi I’ll talk also about the community and the cooperation and organization inside.

I’m a member of the board of “Goobi Association”.

Thank you for your support.
