On the one hand, the positive trend of the access numbers can be put down to the website's technical and optical overhaul at the end of 2015 and its improved user friendliness since then. Thus, the contents are not only displayed optimally on all types of terminals, but the website's visitors also profit from a simplified page structure and improved search functionalities.
On the other hand, also the continuously expanding information range and the quality of the contents guarantee the success of the Historisches Lexikon Bayerns, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2016. All articles are written by renowned experts and undergo a multi-stage quality assurance process. It can be ensured in this way that only academically substantiated information finds its way into the Historical Encyclopedia of Bavaria.
The HLB is a cooperation project of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (BSB), the Commission for Bavarian Regional History at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and the Conference of Regional Historians at the Bavarian universities.
