In the mid-1990s, the Literary Archive of the Austrian National Library played a leading role in setting up the KOOP-LITERA network. This initiative links German-speaking institutions which acquire and index contemporary bequests and autograph manuscripts.
On the KOOP-LITERA website, you can find comments and links about
- Partner institutions (“Explore”)
- Online catalogues and directories with information about the collections (“Data Pools”)
- Important sets of regulations, information about data formats etc. (“Standards”)
- Aspects of conservation, databases about cataloguing bequests and autograph manuscripts, training programmes and publications (“Archival Practice”)
- Subject-specific events (“Dates”).
