Text encoding 

Editura GmbH is an experienced service provider for digitization responsible for the »Digitale Bibliothek« among other things. As far as the »Polytechnische Journal« is concerned they accomplish the encoding of the complete text — both Gothic typed books and Antiqua.

Prior to encoding the text Editura GmbH in cooperation with the projects' research assistant define a set of data to be encoded. Besides author, title and subtitle we encode different types of articles (miscellanea, indexes of patents etc.), images including links as well as tabular.

These data will enable us not only to search for specific articles, names, authors. They serve as a basis for linking the text to the images in both presentation and print options newly accomplished. Moreover a serialized searching wouldn't be possible without them.
