Selected parts of the Research Library for the History of Education's holdings have been digitised and are openly accessible via the internet. These digital collections have been compiled in cooperation with other institutions and are continually being expanded.

The Research Library for the History of Education (Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung – BBF) digitises educational-historical sources – partly as full text – with in-depth classification of content and provides these open access if they are within the pubilc domain:

Moreover, the BBF cooperates regarding the provision of gateways in the area of educational research and history which comprise diverse information services, e.g. reviews, reference databases, directories of institutions and current information and announcements.

For detailed information about these databases and gateways, please refer to the the website of the BBF, section Searching & Finding.
