Conservation

The papyri are usually one by one framed in plexiglass, although some smaller fragments are put together under one glass.

Inventarisation

The total number of papyri and papyrusfragments is about 15.000. An old card catalogue is from 1983 on systematically integrated in an inventory that exists of loose sheets kept in binders. This inventory is to be used as a basis for a databank, which now goes till inv. nr. 4985 and contains both framed and unframed papyri. Some 5000 papyri have not yet been catalogued or framed. The catalogue available on Internet shows the situation of 1997, which will also contain digital images of all the framed papyri, both published and unpublished, which are now being scanned. Steve Emmel (then coptologist in Münster) has worked for many years on the catalogue project; Ruth Duttenhöfer (Trier) joined it in the period 1994-1997.

Publications

Comprehensive publications: P.Yale I, II; P.Yale Copt. I; P.Bacch. (YClS 10, 1947, 179-281); P.Dura. Individual publications in P.Oxy. I - VI; P.Fay.; P.Hib., and in several other books and articles, cf. the bibliography, in P.Yale II, p. XV-XXX. An introduction to the on-line catalogue which is being created. Altogether some 400 papyri have been published.
