By using digital technologies and tools, this project aims to make the history of early modern collecting culture visible, accessible, and understandable. Departing from the analysis of objects, their mutual relationships, actors, sites and networks of collecting, attention is given to the possibilities and challenges of digital curation. Another research question that will be explored is directed at the strategies that can be developed to preserve and use cultural heritage under the conditions of the digital.
