DLib.si - Digital Library of Slovenia (website).png

The Digital Library of Slovenia (dLib.si) is a web portal developed by the National and University Library (NUK) in cooperation with several cultural, educational and research institutions, including numerous libraries throughout Slovenia.

dLib.si provides free access to digitised knowledge and cultural treasures – journals, books, manuscripts, maps, photographs, posters, music, and reference material. Many of the digitised items – some published in the 16th century – have been made possible in the framework of the project Europeana Travel funded by the European Commission within the area of Digital Libraries of the eContentplus Programme.

The Digital Library of Slovenia is linked up with comparable European projects, and is actively involved in building the Europeana, the European digital library and the TEL project (The European Library).


Services

The dLib.si portal became publicly available in 2005. In 2006 a total of 364,170 titles were digitised (representing 358,786 articles), together with 223,462 scans. The number of scanned pages has reached 3,5 mio (2.300 books, 10.000 photos, 6.100 posters, 574 manuscripts, 500 maps, etc).

If a book was published before 1945, and is not available on the dLib.si portal, you can order its digital copy by using international service E-knjige po naročilu/ EOD (e-books on demand).

Workshops

The National and University Library (NUK) occasionally offers free lessons on how to use the dLib.si portal as well as travels to schools, libraries and other organisations across Slovenia to make presentations about how to use it.

dLib.si PLUS

In response to the incredible increase in users of dLib.si portal, a new project entitled dLib.si PLUS received funding from the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia. In addition to improving the general usability and functionality of the portal, the year-long project allows for the digitalisation of music recordings and old musical documents that are of importance to Slovene cultural heritage.
