Universitätsjubiläen und Universitätsarchive. Die Jahrhundertfeiern an den Hochschulen Prag und Leipzig als Chance für die Universitätsarchive, S. 229-234
University anniversaries usually bring demands on a new elaboration of university history and its presentation in exhibitions, public lectures and media. This article is focused on two cases from the last two decades: Leipzig (2009) and Prague (1998). Both universities belong to the oldest middle age university foundings in central Europe. In both cases university archives belong since their institutional establishing to the traditional organizers of university festivities and had to harmonize their common administrational tasks with the rhythm of the anniversary. The archivists also belonged to the main contributors of newly prepared university history volumes, including the selection of the pictures. The anniversaries also influenced the image of university archives in public. The comparison of both cases can help to specify, what seems to be common in the role of university archives in university festivities.

Archive zur Musikkultur nach 1945. Nachweis und archivgeschichtliche Bestandsaufnahme. Ein DFG-Projekt des Archivs der Universität der Künste Berlin, S. 235-244
The article introduces a project on musical culture in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland since 1945: the aim is to draw up a subject guide of archival records. This work is part of a musicological research project entitled “Continuities and Breaks in Musical Life during the Post-War Era”. The project starts from the observation that music plays an important role for communication in the aftermath of Nazi tyranny, World War II, and the Holocaust. Music used to be the “most German of the arts”, and then it seemed to possess the power of facilitating understanding between victims and offenders. The impact of musical exile is effective in this context, comprising the return of persons, works, and http://ideas.In this perspective, receiving and collecting archives should be regarded as a topic in the field of music history. The announced subject guide is intended for serving as a finding aid as well as a survey of archivists’ efforts.
