German Literature


This guide will provide a brief orientation to the University of Chicago Library's collection in German Literature. Current collecting focuses on German literary and cultural studies from the 18th century to the present. Historical holdings for medieval and baroque German literature and for Dutch literature are stronger than current collecting levels, reflecting shifts in the academic program.To learn more about the library's collections and purchases, please consult the collection development policy.
