German Inscriptions Online
The Project Deutsche Inschriften (DI) aims at collecting and editing all Latin and German inscriptions of the Middle Ages and the early modern period up to the year 1650. The collection area covers Germany, Austria and South Tyrol. Every DI volume either contains the inscriptions of one or several urban or administrative districts or the inscriptions of a single town.
The long-term objective of Deutsche Inschriften Online (DIO) is the digitalization and online availability of the entire DI series.
The following work steps have already been tested, optimized and standardized: retro-digitization of older volumes without digital equivalent, editing of volumes that are less old, obtaining image rights for the online publication, input of metadata, taking additional photos if only black-and-white photos had been pre-existed.
