The Verein für Lübeckische Geschichte und Altertumskunde is online with a new website
Everything about Lübeck's history.
The webworkers at gradwerk have developed and implemented a newly designed website with an integrated search function and database on all journals and communications published since 1855.
Founded in 1821, the VLGA - one of the oldest German historical societies - has set itself the task of researching Lübeck's past and spreading this knowledge among the population. gradwerk was commissioned to develop a new design and functional concept for the website.
Based on the so-called Responsive Web Design, target groups on smartphones and tablet PCs are now also optimally reached. In addition to general information on the work of the VLGA, the association offers about 20 lectures, discussion evenings, excursions, walks and guided tours every year. They are maintained and managed on the website with the help of a specially developed event database software via CMS 6.
The core of the site, however, is a publication of the "Zeitschrift für Lübeckische Geschichte" (Journal of Lübeck History) going back to 1855. All issues can be researched, searched and downloaded as PDF files for all years thanks to a designed online database. This applies not only to the published journals, but also to all communications. Thus a true treasure of Lübeck and North German history has been created here and is available to the public free of charge. Thanks to automatic full-text indexing of all PDF files loaded into the CMS 6, site visitors can also discover topics and articles via full-text search.
The digital agency gradwerk has developed a modern design that continues to live up to historical standards. Thanks to many dynamic contents, such as the publications, the events database and the news, the client is able to maintain and manage the contents comfortably and conveniently with the help of CMS 6.
The new website places great emphasis on topicality and thus the motto of the association applies all the more: Lübeck's history at first hand.
