Provenance research at the WU Library - about the origins of our books


In the university library, you will find over 690,000 printed books. Among these, however, there are also some whose provenance has not been clearly established.

These include, in particular, books that came into the library as looted property from the National Socialist era. In this blog post (in German language), our colleagues from Provenance Research describe how they research these problematic holdings.
