Die SuUB Bremen engagiert sich seit mehreren Jahren in der Digitalisierung von historisch wertvollen Bibliotheksbeständen. Für die digitale Transformation dieser Bestände zu sorgen und sie einer zeitgemäßen Nutzung im Internet zur Verfügung zu stellen sowie die Kompetenzen im Bereich Digitalisierung zu entwickeln, zählt zu den genuinen Aufgaben einer modernen wissenschaftlichen Bibliothek. Als Universitäts- und Hochschulbibliothek ist sie zudem der in Bremen ansässigen wissenschaftlichen Forschung verpflichtet, forschungsrelevante Digitalisierungsprojekte werden oftmals mit Förderung durch die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft durchgeführt. Der folgende Beitrag stellt eine Digitalisierungsbilanz der SuUB Bremen in den Jahren 2011 bis 2016 vor. For several years, the State and University Library Bremen has been committed to the digitisation of historically valuable library collections. It belongs to the genuine tasks of a modern scientific library to see to the digital transformation of its collections and to place them in the internet for up-to-date use as well as to develop competences in the area of digitisation. Moreover, as a university library, it is committed to the scientific research located in Bremen, and digitisation projects relevant for research are often promoted by the German Research Foundation. The following article presents the results of the digitisation works at the SuUB Bremen in the years 2011 to 2016.
