|Finding Aids for Mission Archives|
The Africa-related holdings of mission archives in Basel, Breklum, Bremen, Hermannsburg, Herrnhut, Leipzig, Moshi (Tanzania), Neuendettelsau, Nuremberg and St. Ottilien were explored by students of the Institute of African Studies using the “Augias” archive software. The first phase of this work was conducted in cooperation with the University of Bayreuth and with the support of the Stiftung Volkswagenwerk.
The finding aids are published in booklets as part of the series “Mission Archives” (University of Leipzig Papers on Africa, ULPA) and can be ordered via the Institute. An overview of the papers is accessible here. The booklets 2-4, 6-18, 20-21 and 23-24 are also available as pdf-files. Furthermore, English versions of booklets 1-4 are obtainable.
