Manuscripts, autographs, pictures

Bonn University and State Library has an extensive and constantly expanding holding of manuscripts of the modern age at its disposal: autographs, literary estates, war letters, music autographs and music manuscripts as well as further material. These documents have been recorded in Bonn University Library since 1992 with the cataloguing system HANS "Handschriften, Autographen, Nachlässe und Sonderbestände" and can be extensively searched with this catalogue. In order to enable an improved use of the holdings, important copyright-free documents and holdings will gradually be digitised and made available online in the digital collections of Bonn University and State Library. The resolution is sufficient to display these on screen. For reproduction purposes the ULB offers high-resolution picture files liable to costs.
