For the most part, the Oriental Department's printed works are catalogued in the StabiKat including parts of the old holdings and, since completion of the retro-conversion in 2015, the two card catalogues that Deutsche Staatsbibliothek der DDR took custody of after World War II:

  • AK-Or II (publications up to 1974, acquisitions of Preußische Staatsbibliothek and Deutsche Staatsbibliothek der DDR)
  • AK-Or III (publications from 1975 to 1992, acquisitions of Deutsche Staatsbibliothek der DDR)

The original card catalogues are still accessible in the basement of the Oriental and East Asia Reading Room.
