The representatives of collections and museums of several European universitites assembled at Halle, on 16th April 2000, agreed to found a network, „Academic Heritage and Universities“. The network is open to interested academic institutions with similar collections and collaborates closely with other relevant initiatives. The objective of the network is to share knowledge and experiences among its members and to undertake joint projects with the aim of enhancing access to the collections at all levels.
