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 long-term preservation of as well as the maintenance of access to the digital data pose new technical and organisational challenges to the Munich Digitization Center/Digital Library, because

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.

Access to image-based resources is fundamental to research, scholarship and the transmission of cultural knowledge. Until now, much of the Internet’s image-based resources have been locked up in silos, with access restricted to custom-built applications. The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) supports uniform display of images of books, maps, scrolls, manuscripts, musical scores and archival material from participating institutions for display, manipulation, measurement and annotation by scholars and students working individually or in groups around the world. For more information see the actual press release and visit http://iiif.io.
