Digital Library: Catalogs

Local OPAC Hertziana

The local OPAC lists Bibliotheca Hertziana holdings and shelfmarks of works that are located in one of the three other KUBIKAT libraries in Florence, Munich and Paris. A red-green light system indicates the in-house lending status for Bibliotheca Hertziana holdings. Red means "Borrowed"; these books can be requested at the information desk. All resources are displayed, even if the corresponding publication is only available in one of the other three libraries.


KUBIKAT is the online catalogue of the Art Libraries Network composed of the Bibliotheca Hertziana, the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence, the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich and the Deutsches Forum für Kunstgeschichte in Paris. KUBIKAT is one of the most important bibliographic research tools in the discipline. Essays are systematically indexed according to subject. A version based on linked open data that makes licensed online content searchable is currently under development.
