The Libraries have acquired De Gruyter’s Verfasser-Datenbank, a German-language database of reference materials which provides comprehensive information about literary authors and works in German-speaking world from the Middle Ages to the present. It is comprised of content from these four reference works:
- Die deutsche Literatur des Mittelalters: Verfasserlexikon
- Deutscher Humanismus 1480-1520, Verfasserlexikon
- Frühe Neuzeit in Deutschland, 1520-1620: literaturwissenschaftliches Verfasserlexikon
With Verfasser-Datenbank, you can search all four reference works at once, conduct targeted searches by era, title of work, literary author, manuscripts, places of printing, and literature reference. Updated bibliographical references beyond what is included in the print versions are also available.
