Projects

The historical holdings of the Herzog August Bibliothek form a collection of European culture from the early Middle Ages to the Enlightenment and beyond that is unique in breadth and depth. Manuscripts, incunabula and prints as well as graphics and paintings, maps and modern artists' books offer a variety of starting points for cataloguing, editing and research projects. The proven hermeneutic approaches of the humanities are complemented and supported by innovative methods of the digital humanities.
