 +====== German National Library Digitizes One Million Pages ======
 +The [[http://​www.dnb.de/​EN|German National Library (DNB)]] is currently digitizing over one million pages in a project to make severely damaged books available for its users again.
 +
 +=====  =====
 +
 +In the past years the [[http://​www.dnb.de/​EN|DNB]] has been using mass deacidification to preserve acidic paper, but mechanical preservation methods are reaching their limits. The current project is a starting point for the library to gain knowledge in the field and to plan future digitization. Due to copyright requirements most digitized books are only available from within the library.
