The website Deutsche Biographie is a joint project of the Historical Commission at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Bavarian State Library. It represents the electronic version of the highly renowned printed encyclopedias Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie (ADB) and Neue Deutsche Biographie (NDB), with 48,000 biographies and more than 250,000 additional person entries. Besides a presentation of the website, we will focus especially on the project's network enabling infrastructure, including such topics as the use of standards for encoding, authority data, linking mechanisms, and technical interfaces for the web application.
