Aims and Scope

The Verfasser-Datenbank (Database of Authors) enables, for the first time, the renowned standard reference works Die deutsche Literatur des Mittelalters, Deutscher Humanismus 1480–1520, Frühe Neuzeit in Deutschland 1520–1620 and the Killy-Literaturlexikon to be used systematically in electronic form. Over 20,000 lexicon articles on authors of German literature, ranging from the very beginnings to the present, were cross-linked in the database and their content can be accessed in a targeted manner using differentiated search criteria. In ongoing updates, the databases relating to the Middle Ages are revised in terms of content and supplemented by many current literature references which are linked to the library collections. An advisory panel of established experts guarantees the highest academic quality.
