Katalogisierung der Orientalischen Handschriften in Deutschland

Databases of the KOHD project accessible online

Screenshot Website KOHDThe Union Catalogue of Oriental Manuscripts in German (KOHD) is a research project of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences.

Since 1957 it has made it its mission to make the extensive collections of oriental manuscripts in German libraries accessible for research. The manuscripts often did not appear in any catalogue and thus remained hidden from science.

Since 2016, databases have replaced the previously printed catalogues. These databases have been accessible online since January 2019. The project is scheduled for completion in 2022.
