The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) has approved funding for a three-year project to re-index and re-catalogue these manuscripts. Using the DFG guidelines for in-depth cataloguing, the aim is to create a modern listing of all the manuscripts to replace Gustav Schmidt’s catalogue of 1878–1881.

The results of the project will be published piecemeal while it is still ongoing and will be based on those of the MASTER-Projekt.

The project team will describe and classify the late medieval bindings and enter the data in the Einbanddatenbank (bindings database, EBDB), which is likewise funded by the DFG.
