DILIMAG started 2007 with a project conducted by the Innsbruck Newspaper Archive ( IZA) and funded by the Austrian Science Fund. The Innsbruck Newspaper Archive continues the collection after the project ended in 2010. With the technical development of the digital media, new forms of literary periodicals and new ways of distributing literature have emerged. Due to the special characteristics of the net and digital media this new form cannot be covered by conventional description and analysis methods. The project responded to a challenge facing literary scholars as well as librarians with respect to how to record, analyze and archive German-language digital literary magazines (i.e. magazines that can only be found on the internet). The results of the project were published in:

Renate Giacomuzzi, Stefan Neuhaus, Christiane Zintzen (2010): „Digitale Literaturvermittlung“.

Renate Giacomuzzi (2011): „Deutschsprachige Literaturmagazine im Internet“.


Besides continuing the collection of ‘born online’ literary magazines the Innsbruck Newspaper Archive is conducting a new collection of author homepages. Since web archiving requires a high degree of specific technical know-how and experience in dealing with the ever changing demands of Internet sources, we decided to search technical support by the Internet Archive. Since 2011 the Innsbruck Newspaper Archive is a partner of the Internet Archive's web archiving service ARCHIVE-IT All harvested websites are finally stored in the digital repository oft he University of Innsbruck.
