Explaining the nominal catalogues
The entries in the author-title catalogue are ordered according to the so called "Preussischen Instruktion" (“Prussian instruction”). The entries are ordered alphabetically according to author. A work written by one to three authors can be found under these authors. In any other case the book can be found with its title, namely the first noun in the nominative. Umlauts get split, e.g. ä becomes ae, ß becomes ss, there is no difference between i and j. Example: "Preußens berühmtester König" can be found under "Koenig Preussen beruehmtester".
