Project object

In 2013, the Children’s and Adolescents‘ Book Department was able to digitize a selection of some 1,600 books of its substantial collection of historical children’s and young people’s books with the funding of the Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media. As the funding period was limited to that one legal year, it was necessary to pick a reasonable part of the collection. So the department opted for a selection of its non-fictions books, encompassing for the main part the natural sciences, engineering, parts of its geography collection (including travel stories), books on recreational activities (including cook books and puzzle books), as well as works of reference.
