The image memory of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg

Since the winter semester 2021/22, a new media service has been available to the TU Bergakademie - the digital image and multimedia database TUBAFmedia. Under the direction of the university library, the development of the database was started at the end of 2020. The historical and current image material from the holdings of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg is now managed with the software easydb from the company Programmfabrik GmbH.

Currently, the University Library, Department 5 - University Communication (Media Center and Press Office), the Custody and the Institute of Electrical Engineering (Faculty 4) are digitizing and making accessible primarily their historical holdings - including photos, negatives, slides, maps/plans, drawings, copperplate engravings, advertising brochures and postcards - in order to make them available university-wide or worldwide to research and teaching as well as to the interested public.

Notes on the databaseHinweise zur Datenbank

TUBAFmedia includes both a publicly accessible area and an area restricted to university employees. Use of the image database is permitted exclusively on the basis of the stated terms of use, which must be confirmed before entering the homepage.

An overview of the structure of the TUBAFmedia user interface can be found here. A quick introduction to the use of search masks and research tools as well as display and download options is provided by the instructions for using TUBAFmedia.

For university members the login is done with the central login data via Shibboleth.

The externally shared media are for the most part images that are in the public domain or whose use is described by an appropriate CC license, so no additional image rights requests are necessary.
