EU-Project “Men and Books” – Kick-off Meeting 9.-10.05.2012

In May 2012 the EU-Culture Project “Men and Books – for a risk-free use of the European written cultural heritage” officially started with a kick-off meeting of all project partners in Horn/AT. On Wednesday, May 9th the meeting commenced with an introduction of the hosts and guided tour through the historical building of the “Kunsthaus Horn“, housing the European Research Centre for Book- and Paper Conservation-Restoration (project partner) among other institutions.

The next day, May 10th, was reserved for the introduction of the project partners and their roles in the project, discussion of the project activities, planning of the next steps, etc. finished off with some general information on administrative and financial issues.

After this succesful meeting the group enjoyed a well earned lunch at a local restaurant and afterwards had the chance to visit the church archive of Horn.

A big thanks to our hosts in Horn and all participating partners for this succesful and interesting first meeting!!

The virtual reunion of the Teutonic Order – Finally!

A great example on how our work and technical knowledge about document digitization helps to reverse the fragmentation of archives that has been result of historic events:

The State Archive Ludwigsburg (DE) has, in cooperation with ICARUS and within the project “Virtuelles deutsches Urkundennetzwerk” (Virtual German Charters Network), started to digitize the charters of the Teutonic Order.

Good to know: Corresponding documents stored in the Central Archive of the Teutonic Order in Vienna (AT) as well as in the State Archive Marburg (DE) have also already been digitized by ICARUS — The documents will be online on Monasterium.net in the course of this year!

Have a look at these great articles (in German) about the project:
