Research Library for Turkish Studies: The Jacob M. Landau Collection
In 2003, the University and State Library Saxony-Anhalt (ULB Halle) purchased parts of the private library of Prof. Jacob M. Landau (Jerusalem). 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 of the DFG, parts of the collection, comprising 52,000 pages (345 volumes) have been digitized.
The University and State Library Saxony-Anhalt (ULB Halle) maintains the electronic fulltext materials of Turkish studies library as a module of its Specialised Information Service for Middle East, North African and Islamic Studies and its fulltext repository MENAdoc. Technical concept and support for the project are provided by semantics GmbH in collaboration with Walter Nagel GmbH & Co KG and Mikro Univers GmbH.
