Journal for Librarianship and Bibliography: The German Lost Art Foundation describes its tasks and fields of activity
In the new issue of the Zeitschrift für Bibliothekswesen und Bibliographie (“Journal for Librarianship and Bibliography”, 4|2016), Uwe Hartmann, head of the Provenance Research Department at the German Lost Art Foundation, presents an overview of the area of provenance research.
In the article he offers a detailed description of the Foundation’s tasks, research themes and areas of activity, and elucidates on the broadened perspectives and general conditions of provenance research in Germany today.
The journal also includes reports on projects currently funded by the Foundation, e.g. investigations of Nazi-confiscated property at the State Library Centre of Rhineland-Palatinate and the Bautzen Municipal Library. The current issue of the Zeitschrift für Bibliothekswesen und Bibliographie was edited by the former executive library director Dr. Georg Ruppelt and features reports on Nazi looted books.
