The Historical Lexicon of Bavaria ( HLB for short ) is a scientific subject lexicon on Bavarian history that appears as a purely online publication . It is the first subject lexicon on the history of the Free State of Bavaria and its various parts of the country.
History and Development
The idea of an online lexicon on the history of Bavaria was developed in the late 1990s. Work on the lexicon began in February 2005. The first 120 articles from the Weimar Republic module were published in May 2006. By the beginning of 2019, the HLB, which was expanded to include the Late Middle Ages module in 2007, the Post- 1945 contemporary history module in 2008 and the Early Middle Ages module in 2017, had grown to around 1130 articles. The aim of the HLB is to comprehensively cover all epochs of Bavaria's past since prehistory .
The HLB sees itself as part of the Bavarian State Library Online, which has been developed since 2000. It is also dovetailed with the culture portal bavarikon . In 2014/15 the HLB underwent a comprehensive technical and visual relaunch . Since then, it has been possible to search for epochs and categories.
The HLB is sponsored by the Bavarian State Library , the Commission for Bavarian State History at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and the Conference of State Historians at the Bavarian universities . The editorial office is located at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek. The project manager of the HLB is the head of the Bavarica department of the BSB, Stephan Kellner. The scientific director is Ferdinand Kramer , Institute for Bavarian History at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich . Technical support is provided by the Munich Digitization Center / Digital Library department of the BSB (head: Markus Brantl).
The editorial team of the HLB currently (March 2019) consists of four part-time employees, who are supported by several also part-time research assistants. Quality assurance is in the hands of the lexicon’s scientific advisory board, which consists of over 40 professors from the regional history chairs of Bavarian universities and several private lecturers. The more than 800 authors of the articles so far are each relevant specialist scientist.
The main financial sponsor is the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Art .
The HLB is aimed equally at the scientific community and the general public with an interest in history.
The structure of the HLB articles is based on conventional specialist dictionaries. In condensed form, they reflect the latest research on the respective subject. In addition, short abstracts and further information in the form of relevant secondary literature , illustrations , sources and external links are attached to the articles ; The HLB benefits from the constantly growing electronic range of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and other institutions, etc., by linking directly to digitized sources and titles.
All article contents are made accessible through standard person and place data . The editors have the opportunity to pass on comments and suggestions to the authors of the articles.
