16th Century (VD 16)
0 Bibliography of books published in German-speaking countries in 16th century (VD 16)
The bibliographic cataloguing of printed works of the 16th century was financially supported by the  Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) from 1969 to 1999 and has been continued since then with the funds of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.
After the completion of the printed edition including the index volumes in the year 2000, the VD 16 is now also available in the form of a database. Ownership data of libraries in Germany and abroad are constantly added. The supplement to the printed edition, which is maintained in an electronic form only, comprises over 25,000 titles and is continuously expanded by the addition of title data of various libraries and the new acquisitions of the BSB within the framework of the  Sammlung Deutscher Drucke (Collection of German Printed Works).
All printed works pertaining to the VD 16 of the BSB's collection are being digitised within the framework of a DFG project running since February 2006. You can find links to the images in the VD 16 and the OPACplus.
