Catalogues of the Project Partners:

Catalogues and directories of Latin manuscripts: A.) Latin manuscripts up to Clm 27268 (Database) – B.) Recatalogued holdings of Latin manuscripts – C.) Latin supplement – D.) Handwritten Repertories.
The library is specialised in literature relevant to branches of learning, institutions, philology and literary genres from the 6th to the 16th century.
