All digitised titles can be accessed not only in the WDB but also, in the case of independent printed works or monographs, via the online public access catalogue (OPAC).

Projects that go beyond formal in-depth cataloguing also contain a database for project-specific research as well as a list of shelf marks providing an overview of the digitised titles or materials. There is also a link for searching the catalogue, references to secondary literature and information on the project materials used.

To access information about digitised manuscripts, please visit the manuscript database. This lists digitised manuscripts, including those of other institutions, and provides access to full-text descriptions.

The HAB guarantees in a special declaration (in the ‘Download’ section on this page) that all digitised titles will have persistent URLs to allow them to be accessed and reliably cited on a long-term basis.
