What Drives Us
This is how we work
Maastricht University (UM) has a careful acquisition policy that allows it to acquire unique collections
The University Library possesses several important heritage collections and makes these available for research and education. These often involve paper documents, which need to be carefully handled, digitised and made available to a wider audience
The Maastricht Academic Heritage Fund (AEMF) encourages initiatives and projects in these areas to ensure this heritage retains its unique value.
