Scientific Collection of the University of Greifswald

In 2010, the University of Greifswald launched an initiative for the cross-faculty digitization of its object-related collections.

Most of the 5.74 million individual objects are housed in magazine cabinets and depots of individual university institutes. Only a fraction of the 16 collections have so far been scientifically catalogued and accessible. With this website, the university presents online access to the previously digitized collections of the project. Digitisation activities of individual collections FloraGREIF and GeoGREIF are a shining example for the research relevant collection at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. With the digitisation project, the University is following a recommendation of the German Council of Science and Humanities to implement a complete collection-wide inventory in a central collection database. The publication of the Greifswald collection data will also be soon available in the Europeana. Currently, more than 5,000 objects from seven collections can be searched in the database, which is still under construction.
