Use Cases

The first projects carried out on the basis of Goobi were mostly from the library world. But over the years many new uses have been added, such as digitizing books, digitizing on demand or coordinating exhibitions. Various use cases are described in concrete terms here.

Who uses Goobi again? Wasn’t there someone in Switzerland? Or was that in the Netherlands? Or am I just confusing that with Australia? Anyway, here they are (almost) all listed once. And many also (soon) with contact details for the respective contact persons.
