In 2003, the Universitaets- und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt (ULB Halle) purchased parts of the private library of Prof. Jacob M. Landau.
The collection comprises 3.000 volumes of original source materials and secondary literature on the history of the late Ottoman Empire
and modern Turkey.
The collection was catalogued with support from the
German Research Foundation (DFG).
Also with support by the DFG, parts of the collection, comprising ca. 400 volumes with ca. 52.000 pages,
are currently transferred into electronic format.
