Collections of the University Archives

The University Archive not only preserves archival records of Tübingen's university history. It also owns supplementary collections of very different kinds, such as pamphlets from the 1968 student movement or studentica from the nineteenth century. In addition, this collection also includes graphics, silhouettes, and large historical photo collections from various disciplines and institutes. A collection of audio tapes of university radio broadcasts (1988–2016) has also been archived. Museum objects range from early modern money chests to typars. Such stamps, especially university and faculty seals, are among the pieces of special rank, as they were used to authenticate important documents.

Each month, an interesting object from the of the University Library's or University Archive's collection is presented under the headin "Object of the month".
