Digital card catalogue on titles from 1501 to 1973


This is an online database of images that replicate the card catalogues of the Stadtbibliothek Nuremberg. The database contains a separate image for each catalogue card, about 500.000 images in all. The card files are the only finding aid for titles from roughly 1501 to 1973, including the extensive collections on literature about Nuremberg. Until 2006 the card catalogues were only available in the Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg; their digitalization now provides the possibility to do research anywhere at any time.

The card images are in the same order as the cards are filed in the catalogue drawers.

Please enter a search string to go to the guide card nearest the search string. Alternatively you may click an entry closest to the search string in the index. Starting with the guide card displayed it is possible to browse through a set of images by using the buttons below the image. You may move backwards or forwards one card or skip ahead or back 5, 10 or 25 cards.


Each image is provided in two resolutions; by clicking on an image you will get the higher resolution.
