ThULB: Historische Bestände: Biblioth. electoralis
25.06.2009 at 08:39:52
 
The Jena ThULB (Thüringer Universiotäts- und Landesbibliothek) has a fine search interface for its "historische Bestände" (more ancient holdings) at http://archive.thulb.uni-jena.de/hisbest/editor_form_search-cbu.xml and the collection of "philosophica" (not all of which are tagged there as philosopphy items) in the Bibliotheca electoralis there is remarkable, rich, quite worth to have a look at. And many (or even more) of the items are digitised. And the resolution (where checked) is decent, and so is the file format (tiff)
That's the good news.
 
The less good news is that the items digitised are available only as single page tiffs (though by clicking on the "T" symbol ("Übersicht (technische Metadaten)") when viewing an item you can get a frame with links to the single images, so that you can use some tool to download them. But you have to have it: apparently there's no link to a ZIP archive or something like that with all of the images from a certain item.  
 
A yet major problem is that the server -as of now - seems to be extremely slow. (I checked with tracert: The routes from Munich to Jena (and vice versa) are fast; so the problem seems to be connected to the server. Once this is resolved and I learned about such resolution: expect me to point to quite a number of items in this collection here in Web4Ren Forum (W4RF).

On the Jena digitisation project see also http://log.netbib.de/archives/2009/06/23/digitalisierung-rettet-die-alten-bestan de/ (for a pointer by jplie and http://www.zeit.de/online/2009/26/bibliothek-digitalisierung?page=1 & http://www.zeit.de/online/2009/26/bibliothek-digitalisierung?page=2 (for an interview (in German) with Sabine Wefers, director of the Thüiringer Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Jena ("Digitalisierung kann die Rettung sein")).

2011-02-10 update re http://archive.thulb.uni-jena.de/hisbest/editor_form_search-cbu.xml :

  • By now the server is reasonably fast.
     
  • new items continue to get added (and/or information about items already in the electronic collection gets updated).
     
  • I have still not found a simple way to download the tiffs for a complete volume.
     
  • the "philosophia" collection now contains 17 items; it is worthwhile to select the whole "Bibliotheca electoralis" and then search via  the Dewey classifications.
     
  • for many items there are no links to the digitised versions (yet)
     
  • links to "DFG viewer" may fail (e.g.: http://is.gd/iMzH9o for http://archive.thulb.uni-jena.de/hisbest/receive/HisBest_cbu_00010006
