The VD18 project aims to digitize all works published from 1701 to 1800 in German or German-speaking areas. The intention is to create a complete virtual national library of the 18th century.

In the two-year pilot phase of the project (2010-2012), 75,000 titles comprising 18 million pages will be digitized before the main project phase to digitize 600,000 titles begins.
