A large number of books from the collection of the University of Groningen Library, not in the possession of other libraries, is selected for digitising and digital access by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB, the Dutch national library). Another number of titles has been selected for digitisation by Google. Free digital access to these publicly financed titles results in them being conserved for the long term. It makes the titles digitally and physically available for the future.
This digitisation project consists of two subprojects:
The University Library is aware of the fact that titles from our collection being not available for a longer period, can cause great inconvenience to our users. However, we find it very important that this collection of unique titles is being digitised. When this project is finished, hundreds of thousands of books will be available to the library user nationally and internationally without restrictions, among others on platforms like Delpher and Google Books.
The books are transported to the KB in several batches, and from that moment will be unavailable for about six months. Still, the UL will try to facilitate its users as much as possible in consulting the books from this batch.
