Metadata of the Catalogue for Manuscripts and Archives HAN

The network (Verbund) HAN describes and catalogues hundreds of archives and collections from natural and juridical persons as well as thousands of medieval and early modern manuscripts, letters, notated music, photographs and objects, and make them accessible for the general public. This includes objects from the Basel University Library, the Swiss Economic Archive, the Rorschach Archives and Collection, the Archive on the history of women in Switzerland, the Cantonal Libraries of St. Gall and Appenzell-Ausserrhoden, the Central Library of Solothurn, the Central- and University Library of Lucerne and last but not least the Abbey Library of St. Gall. The metadata are available as a EAD-XML-File, converted out of the original MARC21 bibliographic format and enriched with lots of persistent identifiers for persons, corporate bodies, conferences and geographical entities from the Integrated Authority File (GND).
