Improving the accessibility of the Ludwig Burchard Collection and exploiting its full potential (2014-2015)

This project involved compiling a description and inventory, of the entire scholarly estate of Ludwig Burchard.

The entire collection can now be searched by researchers and other interested parties with the aid of the Anet catalogue. In addition, the extensive Rubens documentation accompanying the published volumes of the Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard have also been made accessible to the public, thanks to an intensive rearrangement and conservation campaign.

You can find more information about the Ludwig Burchard Collection here. The conclusions arising from this project and the accompanying practices were the subject of the seminar ‘Good practice in documenting heritage: on the relationship between archives and documentation‘ (8 June 2015). Read more about this project in The Rubenianum Quarterly and Meta 2015/6.
