Archaeological literature – digitized
Within its Specialised Information Service Classical Archaeology the University Library of Heidelberg holds an extensive collection of archaeological literature of the 16th through the early 20th century. Heidelberg University Library provides digital full-text versions of selected works from its historical collections and makes them available on the Internet at no charge.
Through the thematic portal “Reception of Antiquity in a Semantic Network: Digital Books, Images and Objects” the titles from Heidelberg can be searched along with further digitized works by the project partners.
