The Herzog August Bibliothek is a leading European institute for research on the medieval and early modern periods. As such it conducts its own long and short-term research projects, often supported by outside funding. 

The library aims to foster discussion in the humanities and cultural studies by virtue of its particular research infrastructure which offers library staff, guest researchers, students and conference participants an opportunity for exchange and debate in an interdisciplinary and international framework.
