The collection of prints and drawings includes items with various different owners that are all kept at the University Library Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. It consists of almost 100,000 prints and drawings, around half of which are recorded in this catalog. The collection is highly diverse in terms of the motifs and drawing techniques, as well as the historical and geographical origins of the works, although it specializes in objects from Eichstätt and the surrounding area. The spectrum ranges from late medieval woodcut, copperplate engraving and etching, lithography, steel engraving, and wood engraving to computer graphics. There are also hand-drawn and hand-painted works, as well as a large number of photographs and postcards. A particularly interesting part of the collection is the lithographs produced at the Lithography Workshop Eichstätt. These works can be found both in the main catalog and in a separate sub-folder (‘Sammlung Lithographie Eichstätt’).
The audiovisual archive contains non-commercial audio and audiovisual media of a mostly documentary nature that belongs to the University Library or the KU. It also includes 30 early phonograph records (1890–1893) from Berlin.
