The DDB is Germany’s central, national portal for the cultural and scientific heritage of Germany in digital form. The portal, organized and funded by the public sector, has the ongoing aim of linking up the digitised inventories of Germany’s cultural and scientific institutions, such as libraries, archives, museums, monuments offices, media libraries, universities and other research organisations, and making them available to the public. The DDB provides central access to digital images ranging from books, documents and files, paintings, statues, installations and monuments to movies and music (14,083,497 objects, including 5,975,910 with digitised media, in June 2015).
