Open data sets available for reuse



Our fulltext data sets contain both the complete text (often digitised and OCRd) as well as metadata about documents.


Our metadata repositories contain records that describe documents, but the actual documents are stored elsewhere. For electronic or scanned documents, we provide a link to the document content.


Controlled vocabularies such as thesauri, ontologies and authority files are referenced from metadata descriptions. We provide access to controlled vocabularies mainly through the Finto service.
