Due to urgent system maintenance works, the browsing functionality of our digital collections by place and time was temporarely turned off. All other functions, e.g. collection view, search, image-based similarity search as well as direct access to any of our digitized books are available without constraints.
Later this year, the hundred thousandth digital object, which has been scanned by the Munich DigitiZation Center (MDZ), will be put online. In 1997, the founding year of the MDZ, no one would ever have thought that this figure could be reached. With a throughput of about 1,000 PDF downloads per day and over 30 terabytes of data volume per year the digital copies of the MDZ enjoy great popularity among users. Download queen is currently the Nuremberg Chronicle (Schedelsche Weltchronik). The 100,000 MDZ copies are provided in addition to the more than 1 million works digitized during the co-operation with Google.
