topotheque Graz

The GrazMuseum has launching a topotheque for Graz. The first step is taken by the Geidorf district in cooperation with the local initiative Grätzelinitiative Margaretenbad.

The topotheque is a jointly created and edited online archive as well as a regional historical reference tool. The aim is to preserve and make visible scattered local historically relevant material and knowledge that is kept in private hands. Images, videos, objects, written documents and additional information are digitally preserved in the topotheque. The originals remain with the owners, who together with the ‘topothecaries’, compile the knowledge as well as the history of the objects and stories around them. The inventories and information on these are linked to each other and can be filtered and viewed on Google Maps:
