Course: Goobi Refreshed.

intranda GmbH / Digitisation / Training and workshops / Course: Goobi Refreshed

Brief overview of the ‘Goobi Refreshed’ course

The ‘Goobi Refreshed’ course has been designed for end users who are already familiar with Goobi but feel they need to need to update their knowledge. The course aims to cover as many areas as possible in order to give participants a good overview of the program’s extensive functionality and familiarise them with the latest developments and features. For experienced Goobi users, the course is an opportunity to update your skills and work with other participants to review the efficiency of your existing methods, however well-established they may be. If you wish, you can bring along your own materials so that we can examine your establishment’s particular requirements during the course.



The selected course topics are based on our experience of working with Goobi for over ten years as well as the feedback we have received from more than forty establishments where the program is in everyday use for a wide variety of projects. Nevertheless, the list of topics can always be adapted to meet individual requirements, and we can even incorporate your own materials and working methods.

The ‘Goobi Refreshed’ course generally covers the following topics in detail:


  • Overview of established methods used in digitisation projects
  • Explanation of basic conventions and terminology

All course participants have their own work station with access to Goobi so that they can practise what they have learned and perform a range of digitisation project tasks. A book scanner is also provided (linked to Goobi) to ensure that participants gain experience of dealing with realistic situations.

There is no need to bring along your own computer. intranda will provide all the documentation and technical equipment needed, as well as free WLAN access. Your course fee includes catering.
