Research projects to participate in

Are you interested in Saxon history and regional studies? Then why not support the SLUB Dresden in making Saxon publications of all media types and fields of knowledge accessible to the entire public?

As the state library of the Free State of Saxony, a central legal mandate of the SLUB is to collect and archive literature, visual and audio media about Saxony as well as publications that appear here. Are you interested in fulfilling this mission together with us? Then you are invited to participate in the following projects.

Saxon Bibliography

The Saxon Bibliography is the central reference tool for media about Saxony and is constantly being expanded - also with the help of users. We have developed a template that allows you to quickly and easily integrate literature references from the Saxon Bibliography into Wikipedia articles.

Dresden Book of Remembrance of the Dead 1914-1918

More than 100 years ago, employees of the Dresden Council Archives began work on the Dresden Book of the Dead - a register of all soldiers who died in the First World War. To this day, it has still not been possible to index all the index cards. Please help us to further process and publish this important source for social and family history as well as for genealogical research. There is an online consultation every Thursday from 15:00 to 16:00.

There are many questions - help us find answers.
