  7. 7. Germany: DFG Call for Newspaper Digitisation Projects • DFG Call for Projects: Digitisation of historical newspapers of the German-speaking area – Goals: • Significantly increase the availability of digitized German newspapers - with a special focus on researchers needs – Requirements: • Proposals must be for a thematic cluster of titles • Justification for digitisation has to be on a title level • OCR is a must, a detailed OCR evaluation needs to be included • Entries about planned digitisation in the ZDB catalogue • Presentation must be compatible with DFG-Viewer
