ABSTRACT
Since May 2013, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German research community) supports pilot projects dealing with the digitalization of historic newspapers at four libraries in Germany, one of them the Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Bremen (State and university library Bremen). At the same time, the Zeitschriftendatenbank (ZDB, journal data bank) is extended and the DFG viewers for newspapers are adapted. The participating libraries not only enlarge the number of digitalized newspapers significantly, but work out standards of newspaper digitalization which will also be relevant for future digitalization projects. The SuUB Bremen's pilot project aims at digitalizing all German-language newspapers of the 17th century which are more completely availiable here than anywhere else. The newspapers are presented on the digital collections portal of the SuUB Bremen (http://brema.suub.uni-bremen.de/) based on the software Visual Library. This paper represents newspaper digitalization in the context of the DFG's current support policy. Apart from emphasizing the standard and structure forming aims of the pilot projects, the specific orientation and the peculiarities of the Bremen project are the subject of the following report.
