Abstract: In a research project of the Helmholz Centre for Cultural Technology that extended over many years, parts of the Medical History Collection, the Portrait Collection, as well as the outstanding graphics of the University Library, all the exhibits of the large exhibition “Theatrum naturae et artis. Wunderkammern des Wissens" („Theatrum naturae et artis. Wonder Cabinet of Knowledge”), parts of the zoological teaching collection, important graphics from the Natural History Museum, and the complete sound archive for the “Cabinet of Knowledge” were systematically registered and digitised. Digital photos and scans, and sound files are the placeholders for the items of the collection in the examples database thus formed, and enable the study of rare or endangered individual items. The nucleus is, however, the transdisciplinary keyword system developed by the participating scientists. It is so arranged that classification characteristics can always be adapted to the current scientific standard without disturbing the data for the item. The databank presented here does not arrogate in any way the representation of the integrated collections and institutions, but only proposes suggestions for the use and presentation of the collection holdings.
