Abstract: The aim of the project is the registration of all university collections in Germany, and also taking into consideration collection holdings which are no longer available, eliciting relevant data about their holdings and history, as well as the presentation of the results in the internet. In this project, university collections are defined as collections belonging to a scientific, theological and liberal arts university, that contain representational and audio-visual items with scientific and/or cultural values, collections of living organisms (e.g. botanical gardens, aquaria) and memorial institutions connected with the university, which are specially used for teaching and research and/or fulfil the function of a museum. Not considered are photographic slide libraries found in the universities since they deal predominantly with secondary sources, and classics collections in libraries and central archives since these are already registered elsewhere. Exceptions are bequests and special archives that are housed in various places in the university and are usually not centrally registered. [Information of the supplier, translated]
