The workflow tracking tool 'Goobi' is an open-source application designed to facilitate the management of small and large digitization projects in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural establishments. It has been under continuous development since 2004. The flexibility with which Goobi can be integrated into everyday work routines and its potential to automate many digitization processes have made it an extremely popular solution.

Nowadays Goobi is used by a large number of institutions in many countries to produce millions of digitized items – together with standardized metadata. As software developers, we therefore constantly face new challenges. These include continuously adapting and extending Goobi in response to cultural and linguistic differences, the enormous range of project goals and data volumes, the sheer diversity of institutions and materials, and the minor problems that inevitably arise in all digitization projects. At the end of the day, there is of course so much more to digitization than creating sharp photographs.
