The intention of SPK digital is to provide an internet-based access point to cultural information of the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz. The SPK started developing procedures to combine metadata from digital library catalogues, archival finding aids and museum inventories which allowed a simultaneous research.
Academic persons and interested citizens can use the SPK digital as a first access point to the holdings of libraries, archives, museums and other kinds of institutions within the SPK. They can see search results from these different types of institutions simultaneously. The results in SPK digital are linked to the results in the original catalogues. There users will get more detailed information and are able to see the search result in its context as well as the available digitized documents.
