Department library

The literature has the following main focal points: technical literature on the manuscripts, including a large number of facsimile editions, auction catalogues, text editions, and manuscript catalogues from all over the world. The individual holdings of secondary literature are listed in the three main catalogues of the Austrian National Library and marked by the citation code HAN at the end of the shelfmark. The time periods recorded there refer to the year of acquisition.

Literary documentation on the manuscripts, autographs and closed collections in the Department are to be found in the database Literature on the Manuscripts.
