OPAC Photographic collection

The online catalogue of the photographic collection currently runs to approximately 355,000 photographs of 250,000 objects ranging from architecture to paintings, drawings, sculpture, applied arts and more. It includes every photograph acquired since 1995, sections of the older holdings and datasets for 246,000 digital images: scanned negatives of our archive (including bequests), digital photographic campaigns since 2003 and digital images from other institutions and outside photographers. The latter are copyrighted and can only be accessed on the Bibliotheca Hertziana Intranet rather than the Internet. Since April 2017 photos from the »Gernsheim Corpus« are available with scans. The MIDAS database objects were edited with HIDA (1995-August 2017) and APS (since September 2017).
