Controlling Digitization processes with MyBib eDoc
UB Bern and ZHB Luzern have been cooperating with Google Books since 2019. Covid-19 delayed the start of the large-scale retro-digitisation project, but in the last quarter of 2020 the project has gained momentum.
Project was successfully completed in fall 2022 with a total of 155.000 books of Bernese and Lucerne holdings digitised.
The contents of the books from 1700-1900 are available worldwide via Google Books and the libraries’ own portals. The library’s internal workflow was controlled via MyBib eDoc in each case.
