The Digital Library of Slovenia – dLib.si provides access to a wide range of digital contents in fields of science, art and culture. As an online source of information, it constitutes an essential component of the modern educational and scientific research process, and is one of the cornerstones of the information society development. Moreover, it ensures preservation of the Slovenian written cultural heritage in digital form, thus digital contents of the past and present will be accessible to future generations.
Regional portal Kamra accumulates digitised local cultural content from libraries and other local cultural institutions. Digital content is thus available through one single place and created by the most competent organisations in their respective fields. Kamra provides them with free infrastructure and also trains new partners, so they can present digitised content of mostly local significance and publish it on the internet.
The content stored on Kamra is presented in the form of stories with supporting narrations, corresponding digitalised objects and metadata. Kamra allows users to discover stories that are significant, interesting and in local community’s interest. Users can now access content that was previously hidden in library storage rooms, archives and museums, associations’ archives or even in the drawers of school staff rooms.
The content on Kamra is also available through the European digital library, Europeana.
Europeana works with thousands of European archives, libraries and museums to share cultural heritage for enjoyment, education and research. Europeana Collections provides access to over 50 million digitised items: books, music, artworks and more, with sophisticated search and filter tools to help you find what you’re looking for.
BIBLOS is the first Slovenian eLibrary and eBookshop with e-books. Slovenian public libraries, which are included in the Biblos system, enable their members to borrow e-books from the Slovenian e-book publishers.
The Library Press Display collection releases over 3,000 national, regional and local newspapers and magazines from Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin, and Anglo-America. Altogether, more than 100 countries and more than 60 languages.
