for this is how the world /
occurs: not piecemeal /
but entire /
and instantaneous

(John Burnside)


The Lyrik Kabinett library subscribes to more than 50 German and international periodicals covering the fields of culture, art, general literature and poetry, and indexes their contents.

The library also holds an extensive range of periodicals that are no longer published, either in whole or in part, from the start of the 20th century to the present.

A complete overview can be downloaded here:


Every issue of a periodical is listed in the Lyrik Kabinett catalogue. Our stock of periodicals is also listed in the Periodicals Database (ZDB) of the Ludwig Maximilian University Library's online catalogue.

The Lyrik Kabinett catalogue also lists the contents of individual periodicals enabling users to search for persons who are either authors or subjects of poems and articles.
