Monsterium.net reaches out to the city of St. Gallen!
Annkristin Schlichte, editor of Arbido, reports in her article “Charters on the web: The international virtual archive Monasterium.net” from the flourishing international cooperation between Monasterium.net/ICARUS and three Swiss Archives: The Archives of the monastery Einsiedeln, the Monastery Archives St. Gallen and the City Archives of St. Gallen.
The vital message: Not only does the team-work between Monasterium.net/ICARUS and various monasteries and archives signify essential steps into the digital future of knowledge transfer; it rather shows the importance for the city itself and enables the citizens of St. Gallen to get democratic access to their own and their city´s cultural history.
