  • use extended search to search for various combinations of terms, e.g. author Dante, title Commedia
  • The Similarity based image search gives you the opportunity to search inside of more than 5 million images identified automatically from manuscripts, old prints, maps and other works from the holdings of the Bavarian State Libary, published between the 8th and the 20th century.
