Long-term Preservation at the Bavarian State Library


BSBThe Bavarian State Library offers to its users access to a diversity of digital documents. Those include publications stored on physical data storage media (floppy disks, CD-ROM, DVD, tapes) as well as online publications (digital monographs and periodicals, databases, websites and digitized resources produced by the Munich Digitization Center) that are published through networks only. Access to those digital resources can be free or limited due to licensing agreements (e.g. only for registered users of the library).

The Munich Digitization Center/Digital Library has set itself the goal to permanently maintain access to those digital documents for future generations of library users.
