The "Delin." shelf mark group contains the most precious of the University Library’s graphic treasures, including drawings and sketches by famous artists such as Jan Breughel and Balthasar Neumann. Aside from shelf marks beginning with the same letters, these 11 collections have very little in common, ranging from architectural and building sketches to drawings of animals and plants, portraits and location views to coloured pen and ink drawings of machines.

How are these collections indexed?
We are gradually adding these eleven collections to our collection portal Franconica. If the collection is already available online, we will include a link with the relevant description. The staff in the Manuscripts and Rare Books department will be happy to help you with any collections not yet included.
How can I see the original collections?
You will need to submit a written application (PDF, 74 KB), with an academic reference and present your ID or passport.
For conservation reasons, you may not be allowed to see some originals. Please get in touch before your visit.
