Frequently asked questions

The DLS is a standardized solution and can be set up and configured within a few days.

Content creation by DLS visitors, for example by commenting on posts, is available.

Yes, this is possible. The digital reading room was designed in such a way that primarily open data can be presented, but also protected and vulnerable information can be made accessible temporarily, for individuals and in encrypted form.

In addition to a further expansion of the existing functionalities, the ordering process of archival materials is also to be further optimized. In addition, we are constantly working on exciting new features, such as the display of archival materials on a map.

The DLS was designed from the outset to handle large volumes of data. Your data can be read directly from a digitization server or a long-term digital archive. The hosting offered scales virtually at will due to the modern storage technology used.

No. The digital reading room is operated by us in the cloud. We take care of the technology so that our customers can take care of the technical aspects.
