Archaeological literature – digitized
Within its special subject collection 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. Since September 2009 this service is part of the DFG project “Reception of Antiqutiy in a Semantic Network: Digital Books, Images and Objects”.
