The Archives of the Max Planck Society - a review of 2016
Archiv der MPG
SummaryIn 2016, some complex processes were successfully implemented. This includes the adoption of the archive statutes, which regulate the archive's rights and obligations and make them transparent to users. In addition to many successful acquisitions, especially in the field of photographs and collections, documents from a very influential patron of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society, Leopold Koppel, were transferred to the archive, including the first known photographs of the banker and his family. The archive entered new territory with its project to develop a tool for email archiving.
