The Salzburg project began in July 2009 with the objective of detecting loo­ted books in the cur­rent inven­tory of the University Library of Salzburg by means of a so-called 'auto­psy', ie an item by item inspec­tion of c 240,000 books.

The report by Andreas Schmoller, published on 1 August 2011, puts special empha­sis on metho­do­lo­gi­cal ques­ti­ons and pro­ble­ms of his­to­ri­cal sour­ces in evaluating the acquisition  records of the 'Studienbibliothek Salzburg', the pre­vious name of the University Library of Salzburg.

The paper also dis­cus­ses the Library’s acqui­si­tion of Nazi-looted books in the period of National Socialism in the context of the cur­rent state of regio­nal his­to­ri­cal rese­arch.
