Projects

The Digital Archive Stuttgart

The Digital Archive Stuttgart is an educational project funded by the project Welcome to Scientific Research. The project educates students of the first semesters for a future where handling large and complex amounts of digitized texts and pictures is crucial for a professional qualification and a successful career. The project relies on team work, intensive supervision, and leading the students to answering current research questions. The educational project builds on an existing educational and research cooperation between the German Literature Archive Marbach and the Institute for Literary Studies, Modern German Literature at the University of Stuttgart. Thereby, new cooperations with the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Information Technologies will be established.
