Central 19th century theology periodicals, which were crucial for the different schools of Theology and their formation, are being digitised in this project, sponsored by the DFG (German Research Foundation).
In 2013, under the name Digital South Asia, the library started with the digitisation of printed and handwritten sources from and on South Asia. It began with the digitisation of the multivolume work “Epigraphia Carnatica”. One volume can already be accessed in a beta version, the rest will follow soon. A project to digitise Malayalam manuscripts and old printed books is planned for the near future.
The University Library and the “Graphische Sammlung” of the Institute for the History of Art at the University cooperated in the digitisation and indexing of some 10,000 portraits from the university’s collections. The image database is open access.
