This is the homepage of the manuscript database of the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel (HAB). You have access to descriptions, indices, research literature and digital images of the manuscripts of the HAB. You may select either a manuscript directly from the selections on the right or a manuscript group from the menu above. If you choose the manuscript groups short introductory texts as well as the catalogues that cover the chosen collection will be diplayed.
For those manuscripts, for which the catalogue full-text is not available, the shelfmark file will list the catalogue(s), which may be linked to a digital facsimile in some cases.
In this database the following manuscripts collections are distinguished:
|Manuscript collections of the HAB||Manuscripts of other institutions|
