Research publications on manuscripts of the Herzog August Bibliothek

The project carried out during 2005 to 2007 aimed at the publication of bibliographical data of research on manuscripts of the Herzog August Bibliothek in a database. Before that all references were kept as manual additions in printed catalogues and as card catalogue. Both summed up to more than 10.000 entries. The vast majority of the bibliographical references is related to the medieval manuscripts of the library. In the scope of the project those have been transfered to a database which was accessible through the website of the library. Furthermore a link from all the Wolfenbüttel manuscripts present in the manuscript database Manuscripta Mediaevalia has been established.




Update: The database had been a self-contained work because of the technical standards at that time realised in Allegro. Since 2010, recent bibliographical references are documented as keywords in the OPAC (manuscript call number, e.g. Cod. Guelf. 3.1 Aug. 2°). Even a huge part of the project data has been transfered to the OPAC. Some more references for which the automatic export was not possible are kept in the manuscript database.

Notes and additions are very welcome!
