Digital technologies and Internet-based platforms are key tools in the effort to improve the visibility and usability of scientific collections. For this reason, the centre supports collections and universities by providing consulting and technical services, finding collaboration partners and organising workshops related to: 

  • Digitisation and cataloguing of object holdings
  • The establishment of local digital infrastructures to make collections accessible on the web
  • Observance of metadata standards and quality criteria
  • Participation in aggregators such as the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek and Europeana
