Not only does the AHI house a specialized library, it can also boast to have developed two bibliographies, both of which its first fruits were published in Augustiniana. Both are now freely accessible on the internet:
1. "Finding Augustine"
The admirable bibliographical work of van Bavel on Augustine resulted in his monumental work Répertoire bibliographique de saint Augustin, 1950-1960 (Instrumenta Patristica 3) (1963), but the first results had already been published in Augustiniana. Since 1963 this bibliographical repertorium has been kept up to date in the Institute in an impressive card catalogue. In order to disclose the enormous bibliographical database thus obtained, the Institute - in close collaboration with the University of Villanova (USA) - made the full bibliography freely available on the internet in 2009. At www.findingaugustine.org you can search this extensive database online (currently more than 80,000 entries!), and explore its refined tree structure.
2. "Finding Augustinians"
In the second volume of Augustiniana (1952) friar Norbert Teeuwen published a first bibliography of the history of the Augustinian order (dating from 1952) ("Bibliographie d'histoire augustinienne"). At regular intervals further additions appeared in the journal, and this painstaking work was continued by Albéric de Meijer (osa) between 1973 and 2004. Since then, the Institute kept the bibliography up to date within a website based version. With the financial support of the Augustinian order, the free online version of this unique bibliography received an update. The result you can see at www.findingaugustinians.org
