We publish handouts and other materials on handling university collections and continuously supplement them.

The Coordination Centre itself publishes handouts, which are created in close collaboration with representatives of scientific collections at universities and external experts. They are designed to meet the needs of university collections and are regularly evaluated and further developed.

With regard to materials, we have compiled guidelines, recommendations and information from other institutions, which may be relevant for work in and with university collections.

Have you also drawn up a set of guidelines or recommendations for university collections and would like to publish them? Please feel free to contact us


The Coordination Centre team provides counselling sessions on collection-relevant issues as well as a contact and expert referral service. We look forward to your enquiry.
