Digital Bookshelf

Initiation: 2015

It can be very fascinating, to browse in old books. However, these old books are often not accessible to everyone - which makes sense, since we won't damage them too much.

Thanks to open data, thousands of scanned books are available on platforms such as, and so on. These are usually PDF documents - which is fine for research but not if you want to exhibit them in a museum.

This bookshelf Projects is a simple and cheap way to exhibit such old books with a simple computer (running Windows or Linux) and a touch screen.
