In the project Alpenwort. Korpus der Zeitschrift des Deutschen und Österreichischen Alpenvereins, the almanac of the Austrian Alpine Club 1869 – 1998 (=Zeitschrift des Deutschen und Österreichischen Alpenvereins ZAV), was digitized and annotated.
The ZAV is a very important source especially for Austria, which shares, by area, the largest part of the Alpine arc. In its first decades the magazine contributions reflect the ongoing touristic and cartographic exploration of the Alps and the economic and scientific discoveries involved. During the 20th century perspectives expanded to the mountains of the world. Globally relevant topics such as environment and nature protection are discussed as well as questions of regional identity and cultural heritage.
The main goal of the project was to make this unique source accessible for the scientific community enhanced by metadata conformant with CLARIN-DARIAH standards.
All original PDFs of the ZAV journal can be freely accessed via the ALO - Austrian Literature Online project here.
