, German Resources:

"The "Biographie-Portal" or “Biographical Portal”
is a cooperative project of the Bavarian State Library, the Historical Committee at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities,
the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Foundation Historical Dictionary of Switzerland.
As such, it would qualify as a Pan-European project, but the focus is decidedly on German-language biographical resources
and it is, therefore, listed here. In sum, the "Biographie-Portal" provides a common search interface to the following well-known resources:

  • Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie (ADB) [Universal German Biography]
  • Neue Deutsche Biographie (NDB) [New German Biography]
  • Österreichisches Biographisches Lexikon 1815-1950 (ÖBL) [Austrian Dictionary of Biography 1815–1950]
  • Historisches Lexikon der Schweiz (HLS) [Historical Dictionary of Switzerland]

In addition to this unified portal to biographical resources, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek has completed capturing the full text of the
Allgemeinen Deutschen Biographie (ADB) / Neue Deutsche Biographie (NDB). Biographic entries on over 46,000 personalities are now searchable in full text through the site.

All NDB articles usually contain biographical, genealogical and bibliographical information such as date and place of birth, date and place of death, parents, marriages, divorces, number of children, alternate and birth names, academic degrees, a curriculum vitae in whole sentences, a valuation of the subject's political, economic, social, scientific, technical or artistic achievements, sources and a bibliography. An index cataloguing all articles is freely available on-line.
