Setup of a DIPF Archive
Setup of an institutional archive for the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF). The archive preserves, indexes and administers all documents of DIPF , from its foundation in 1951 until today, in as far as they are of enduring historical interest, document research findings, or must be stored for legal purposes.
To meet the demand for preserving and documenting knowledge on education (as formulated in its mission statement) in its own right, DIPF is setting up an institutional archive. At the same time, this corresponds to the provisions formulated byfor dealing with archival material from public institutions.
The institute’s archive will preserve, index and administer all documents pertinent to DIPF from its foundation in 1951 until today, in as far as they are of enduring historical interest, document research findings, or need to be permanently stored for legal purposes. Materials include files from the management and administration as well as written documents, filecards, photographs, films and audiorecorded documents, digital material and other kinds of documentation from the research centers as well as other institutional bodies. Material will be compiled and made accessible to users by the A in Berlin.
The archive will actively participate in researching and informing about the institute’s history and it will contribute to sharpening the historical profile of DIPF, both internally and externally.
