Leiden: Medieval Logical Manuscripts (around 10.000 entries) on the basis of the original Leiden-database, on my list of the microfilms (the microfilms are not accessible to me, due to Sten Ebbesen) in Copenhagen, on up-to-date publications and MY Travels in Europe (symposia, library research on location). This work will be completed in 2018
