We have an extensive collection of individual autographs – manuscripts written by an author’s own hand, including letters.
How can I find autographs?
A large proportion of the autograph collection, and our personal papers, can be found in Kalliope. Kalliope is a Germany-wide database for personal papers and autographs.
How can I use autographs?
You will need to submit a written application (PDF, 74 KB), with an academic reference and present your ID or passport.
Autographs and personal papers are often subject to personal rights, so please get in touch with us first.
