Application sample of the MyBib eL® “open application”

Every EMMA (a political magazine completely run by women) issue from the first edition in 1977 up to now is digitised! Every single edition of the approximately 300 issues can now be found in the EMMA reading room. As of September 15th, 2011 scientist, media and interested people have free access to EMMA. Even editions which are no longer available, like the first edition from 1977, are once again accessible and searchable as full texts. A journey through important socio-cultural and political debates of the last 30 years is possible by browsing and keyword-based searching the EMMA issues.

 

For Alice Schwarzer, the founder of the journal, this was a politically motivated decision, because:” If you have no history, you don´t have a future. EMMAdigital is a project against oblivion and for the future.”
