Wolfenbuettel Research Group for Library, Book and Media History
In 1998 the two Wolfenbuettel research groups for Book History and Library History were united under the name Wolfenbuettel Research Group for Library, Book and Media History in order to better cover the overlapping subjects and to concentrate personal and financial resources. The research group seeks to collaborate with all institutions being engaged in this field of research. Its main objectives lay in interdisciplinary exploring and discussing topics of library development as well as book and media history in connection with intellectual history
