The UB autograph collection under the signature group Autograph is completely digitized.

Research tools

Our autographs are not listed in the Katalog plus, but in Kalliope. Here the documents are indexed and searchable according to persons, titles, date of origin and collection groups. They are linked to the autograph and bequest collections of other libraries.
