Egyptological literature – digitized
Within its Specialised Information Service Heidelberg University Library holds an extensive collection of Egyptological literature from the 16th to the early 20th century. Heidelberg University Library provides digital full-text versions of selected works from this remarkable collection and makes them available online free of 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.

The browsing function "Countries and places" allows a topographical access to the digitized titles of Egyptology. It was developed within the proceedings of the thematic portal “Reception of Antiqutiy in a Semantic Network: Digital Books, Images and Objects”.
The underlying georeferencings are based on the date of the geographical database GeoNames. As a rule the referencings are related on the present country and place names. Georeferencings are attributed to these titles, which refer to certain countries or places. On the other side also repositories as museum catalogues are connected to geocodes.
The collection is recorded on our online catalogue HEIDI as well as on the online catalogue of the Special Collection Catalogue of Egyptology and the online catalogue of the SWB (Union Catalog of the South West German Library Consortium). There you can find further digitized literature as well as electronic Egyptological journals made available online through other national or international institutions.
