social backgrounds and covers most of the periods from German, Austrian, Swiss, Slovenian and South-East European history.
The portal now also includes about 1,500 contributions from Biographical Dictionary on the History of South-East Europe (Biographisches Lexikon zu Geschichte Südosteuropas / BioLexSOE online), which is supervised by the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (Leibniz-Institut für Ost- und Südosteuropaforschung, IOS) at Regensburg.

Bavarian State Library - News 11/28/2016

Deutsche Biographie records over one million visitors for the first time in 2016

The Deutsche Biographie (German Biography), a service jointly offered by the Historical Commission at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, posted the number of one million visitors for the first time in 2016.

In 2010, the Deutsche Biographie has been made available to the German-speaking world as a historical-biographical information system, enabling scholars to conduct scientific research. Offering certified facts, the data system contains at its core approximately 49,000 articles as published in the encyclopaedias "Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie" (ADB; General German Biography) and "Neue Deutsche Biographie" (NDB; New German Biography; volumes 1 to 25, A to Tecklenborg). The current state of expansion, financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; German Research Foundation) from 2014 till 2016, provides valid information on more than 730,000 individuals.

By using authority data (Normdaten), it is now possible to access numerous more sources such as encyclopaedias, scientific sources, literature, objects/ oeuvres, and portraits directly on the Internet. Already available in the past, the numerous visual representations of sources have been massively extended. The project's organizers thus react to the current rapid increase of network analysis. In addition, the geographical functions necessary when doing map work have also been expanded (subjects such as places of birth or death, geographic data relating to individuals' activities, and burial sites can be selected and combined freely).

The project's high attractiveness is illustrated by continuously rising user numbers, with "unique visitors" having exceeded the mark of 1 million for the first time during a year in September 2016.

The current state of the project allows for further development of the Deutsche Biographie, eventually turning it into a scientific lab. The final goal is to provide future scholars with data samples from the Deutsche Biographie, enabling them to pursue their projects on an individual as well as collaborative basis. The scientific lab is currently subject of a new application for third party funds.
