Göttingen State and University Library houses over 18.000 Mongolian titles from and about the different Mongolian peoples, including the Kalmyk, Oirat, Dagur, Buryat, Khalka and other Mongolian ethnic groups in China and other countries.
The catalogue in Göttingen uses the established transcription system for titles in the Uiguro-mongolian script, as used in Krueger/Groenbech “An introduction to classical (literary) Mongolian”. The transcription is also known as Mostaert-Vladimirtsov.
Mongolian literature published in China is mainly in the Uiguro-mongolian script, or in the Clear Script, i. e. Todo bichig for the Oirat. Mongolian books from Mongolia and Russia are mainly in the Cyrillic script.
Facsimiles of older Mongolian titles are also published regularly and selectively acquired by Göttingen State and University Library.
