Das digitale historische Archiv Köln

Ongoing project by the city archive of Cologne with the aim to help reconstruct its former holdings after the building's recent collapse (see also here):

"The collapse of the Cologne Historical Archive s Building on March 3rd, 2009 is a human and cultural catastrophe. We are asking all academics to search for photographs, copies and films of archival materials of the Historical Archive of the City of Cologne and to upload them to this website or notify us. (info@historischesarchivkoeln.de) Please help to save a small part of the collective memory of the city of Cologne."

This is a rapidly expanding unique digital archive. Some documents are scans of photocopies whereas others are high-quality color scans of the originals. Registered users can upload documents themselves (from the archive's holdings). The digital archive can be browsed or searched for keywords.
