Digital Resources

The Göttingen State and University Library provides access to digitised objects, many of which were created in cooperation with the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Lower Saxony as well as other institutions of the Göttingen Campus and beyond.

Besides metadata in many projects also elaborated research data are available, which are usually full text searchable. In order to become recoverable research data, the digital objects and their metadata are available on our portals through permanent links and - wherever possible - under a free license.
