Abstract

The Middle High German Conceptual Database (MHDBDB) is a unique database retrieval system that allows users to query medieval German literature from an exceptional variety of approaches. It is located at the University of Salzburg since 2002. We would like to present new features: The cooperation (link) with the Electronic Middle High German Dictionaries (Lexer etc.) at the University of Trier and the addition of historic documents (charters) to the database. There will also be a very short introduction to the MHDBDB.
