Digital Collection

Our digital collections consist of e-books, e-papers and e-journals, online dissertations, audio books, digitally recorded music, websites and digitised works. These collections are growing at astonishing speed: while in 2008 they still only comprised 100,000 units, at the beginning of 2024 they had grown to encompass more than 14,9 million. Depending on the copyright situation, our digital collections can be accessed worldwide through the internet or locally in our reading rooms in Leipzig and Frankfurt am Main.

Unsere digitalen Sammlungen enthalten E-Books, E-Paper und E-Journals, Online-Dissertationen, Hörbücher, digital aufgezeichnete Musik sowie Webseiten und Digitalisate. Sie wachsen rasant: Waren es 2008 noch weniger als 100.000 Einheiten, ist unser Bestand Anfang 2024 auf über 14,9 Millionen Einheiten angewachsen. Je nach urheberrechtlicher Situation stehen Ihnen unsere digitalen Sammlungen weltweit über das Internet oder lokal in unseren Lesesälen in Leipzig und Frankfurt am Main zur Verfügung.
