Estates & Bequests
As the University of Bayreuth strives to permanently preserve the work of individuals, associations, and other legal entities closely associated with the University, and to make the testimony of their work accessible for use, these can be bequeathed during one's lifetime (bequest) or come to the University via descendants, heirs, or the like (estate).
With Collections@UBT a service is provided to acquire data from estates and bequests in the form of
- digital collections and research material (e.g. photographs, films, music, spoken contributions such as readings, interviews or conversations, 3D graphics, CAD models as well as digital texts)
on the basis of a contractual arrangement (donation, deposit; see the legal information for further details).
University members and associated entities can access and present their digitally available collection and research material.
Thanks to a flexible data model and configurable rights management, the system can be largely adapted to the needs of researchers.
As a rule not accepted are analogue research data (e.g. texts, questionnaires, photographs etc. in non-digital form).
These kind of data can possibly be offered to University Archives or the University Library.
