Goals of the Network

The „University of Stuttgart Collections Network“ is an association of contact persons for collections at institutes and central facilities. The goal of the network is to have a platform for the common exchange about challenges of collection curation as well as for the realization of joint interdisciplinary projects. Founded in 2020 by the University Library and the Institute of History, Section for History of Science and Technology, the network meets once a semester. Other interested parties are welcome to join at any time. Contact us!
