Digital photo library
A web-based digital photo library which provides free access to all original exposures digitalised so far, in addition to the various digital photographic campaigns, has been created for the purposes of academic research. This research tool facilitates extensive research on iconography, provenance and the history of the collection process, to name just a few examples.

Electronic catalogue
The electronic catalogue contains all the data pertaining to the photographs purchased since 1993 including thematically relevant older stock. This catalogue is part of the Marburg collective database, ‘DISKUS’, an online photographic index for art and architecture, which not only provides access to the KHI's catalogue, but also to the collections housed in many German museums, important photographic libraries dedicated to the history of art (e.g. the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome) and the databases of various art-historical university institutes. Data are available also on the international portal Europeana.
