Situation survey

Gauss 10 DM

The University of Göttingen is dedicated to further exploiting the potential of its outstanding academic collections for the purposes of research, teaching and science communication and to using the collections to a greater extent in the fields of science communication, educational work and public relations.

Situation surveys serve to systematically ascertain the current state of the academic collections. They aim to enquire about the relevance and usability of the collections, as well as their condition.

The situation survey consists of three blocks of questions, covering, for example, the financial and staffing situation, the use of the collections in research and teaching, and aspects related to restoration and preservation.

On the basis of this information, targeted measures to improve the situation of the individual collections can be implemented. In particular, situation surveys form the basis for decisions about the allocation of funds
