«Un organismo vivente con vita autonoma». Libraries as subject of a PhD school between Osnabrück and Wolfenbüttel

Paola Molino

Abstract


Last Autumn has been launched in Osnabrück a new graduate school, in cooperation with the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel, entirely devoted to the history of early modern libraries. For the next three years a group of 12 graduate students will work on their own projects, using the rich collection from Wolfenbüttel and benefiting from the expertise of scholars working in the library and engaged since many years in the promotion of the rich heritage of the collection. The graduate program is financed by the Ministery for research and culture of the region Niedersachsen. In order to understand how the project was conceived, what ideas underpin its creation, and what are the biographies and expectations of single students, Paola Molino (member of the editorial board of «Bibliothecae.it») has interviewed the coordinator of the program, Prof. Wolfgang Adam, specialist on early modern German literature, and a group of students.
