The article presents the proposals from the Deutscher Bibliotheksverband (dbv) Association of German Libraries, regarding the decision to establish a German digital library. Among the proposals are that the library is a national responsibility and should therefore receive federal funding, that financing of the project must be considered a long term issue, and that digitalization should include not only old acquisitions but also publications of the twentieth century.
