New and high end technology for the handling of huge amount of data.

Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History








“The University of Luxembourg aspires to be one of Europe’s most highly regarded universities with a distinctly international, multilingual and interdisciplinary character. [...]” (Beginning of the University of Luxembourg’s vision statement)

One of these building blocks is the new Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) of the University of Luxemburg that is using the automatic book scanner ScanRobot® 2.0MDS and the digital library Nainuwa™ from Treventus for its research.

ScanRobot® and Nainuwa™ for new concepts for massive data handling

Aim of the C²DH is to connect history and digital age. As more and more content is digitally available new technologies are needed to handle that huge amount of data. For this reason both, the ScanRobot® 2.0MDS and Nainuwa™ are used and it is analysed how such technology helps and supports the users.

In the centre the ScanRobot® is used for the scanning of books and documents for the research of C²DH and also to better understand the process of book-digitization and all invloved parts.
Nainuwa™ is used to search within and browse through the digital content and to support new ways of research.
