Digital Research Reports

In September 2017, the FGSV library purchased a new book scanner for digitizing its old stock.

By means of the new scanner, the FGSV library wants to create access to its already existing but little indexed collections of research reports, manuscripts and archive scripts.
We started with the digitization of our research report collection.

The following file contains a list of digitized and indexed reports that have been scanned from October to December 2017 (German only).
