At Wageningen University & Research, science meets heritage

The library staff at Wageningen University & Research have proactively built their digital image collections in close collaboration with researchers. By focusing on the university’s research strengths, the library helps researchers raise the visibility of their work and ensures that the collections they share are valuable to other researchers globally. In fact, these collections have gained so much attention that an international newspaper profiled one in an in-depth article.

Beyond building valuable collections, the library team works to promote them through innovative formats. They’ve created greeting cards, digital puzzles, and promotional videos featuring images from the collection, and they have plans for more. Read the case study to learn how they’ve succeeded in raising the profile of the university’s research.
