5 (6) years Bibliotheca legum – New publication on the occasion of the anniversary

In 2017, the Bibliotheca legum celebrated its fifth anniversary! Since anniversaries are always a reason to reflect on the past, the Bibliotheca team did the same and recalled the genesis and development of the project. We also gave some thought to the future prospects of the Bibliotheca. The result is an article in the German “Zeitschrift für digitale Geisteswissenschaften”, which you can find here: http://www.zfdg.de/2018_006.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved and supporting the Bibliotheca legum!
