IPAC - Image Public Access Catalogue 1875 - 1993

 

Description

 

This database contains the scanned images of the Hamburg library's catalogue in book form and the card index covering the years 1875 - 1992 (for the period after 1993 see OPAC).

 

Many titles from the card index have already been included in OPAC (online catalogue since 1993).

 

If you do not find a particular publication in OPAC, you should try IPAC.

 

IPAC consists of three catalogues covering the following periods:

  • Library catalogue of "Deutsche Seewarte" (German Naval Observatory) 1890 - 1934 (acquisition time from 1875, first printed in 1890)
  • Cross catalogue 1934 -1960, and
  • Alphabetic catalogue 1961 - 1992

 

The library catalogue of "Deutsche Seewarte" (German Naval Observatory) consists of the main volume (printed in 1890) and five supplements:

 

    1st supplement (printed in 1894)

    2nd supplement (printed in 1899)

    3rd supplement (printed in 1913)

    4th supplement (printed in 1921)

    5th supplement (printed in 1934)

After having selected IPAC, you enter the search word and click on "Suche starten". From the index, which only shows every 50th catalogue card, you then select the entry that is closest to your search word. You find the desired catalogue card by scrolling forward or back in steps of 1, 5, 10 or 20.

 

Also in the alphabetic catalogue, you can only search under certain categories, which are author, corporation, in case of anonymous or several authors the first noun of the title excluding articles and prepositions. Journals are only indexed by their title, not by volume.
