Incorporation to the catalogue
In November 2004, bibliographic records of the individual microfiche collection of the Bibliothek der deutschen Literatur which were acquired several years ago were incorporated into the automated catalogue. This way, it is possible to search all works in this collection by author and title, because up until now its index was only available in the printed catalogue in the Multimedia Room (ANNEXED Shelfmark 000,134 ).
Holdings and microfilming
The microfiche edition project of the Bibliothek der deutschen Literatur started in 1990 by the editorial K. G. Saur in collaboration with the Kulturstiftung der Länder. Basically, it includes literary works and other scientific works from the German sphere (especially History, Philosophy, Theology, Musicology, Political Science, Natural Sciences and Medicine) published between 1650 and 1900, some of which are from older authors. In total, 15,212 bibliographic records were included from works of 27,000 volumes, with an estimated number of 2,500 authors. It contains the works mentioned in Der Taschengoedeke, an authoritative source of the first German editions, compiled in 1924 by Leopold Hirschberg. In addition to the original texts, always in the first editions, are also the first German translations of foreign works, particularly in France, Italy, Britain and the United States.
