Online version of the Monumenta Germaniae Historica, an essential series consisting of modern editions of medieval texts on the history of Central and Northwestern Europe.

From 2012 on, the Verfasser-Datenbank (Database of Authors) enables, for the first time, the renowned standard reference works Die deutsche Literatur des Mittelalters, Deutscher Humanismus 1480-1520, Fruhe Neuzeit in Deutschland 1520-1620, and the Killy-Literaturlexikon to be used systematically in electronic form. Over 20,000 lexicon articles on authors of German literature, ranging from the very beginnings to the present, were cross-linked in the database. UC Berkeley has access to content published through 2018.
