Abgestaubt und neu erforschbar - Die historischen Sammlungen der Deutschen Sporthochschule Köln: Band 1: Personennachlässe

Projects: ProjectFunded by internal resources

Research objective

The anchoring of sport as an important element of culture in our global society has been and will continue to be established by historical research, documentation and through applied projects of sport museums. A central tenet for these kinds of activities is the accessibility of historical documents. As part of the Carl and Liselott Diem Archive (CuLDA, the forerunner of the OSC Cologne), archival collections on almost all iterations of the Olympic Summer and Winter Games, prominent national and international Olympic officials, the Olympic torch relay, the founding of the International Olympic Academy and various Olympic sports, have been catalogued.
In 2011, the OSC Cologne started an ambitious project to professionalize further its archival strategies. By this, it is meant that collections were to be analyzed and structured in a digital system, which would be made accessible to future students and researchers. Now, the focus lies on the creation of a pictorial four-volume book series on the archival material of the German Sport University with numerous illustrations. This project is implemented by the OSC Cologne and the Central Library for Sports Science. Individual volumes are published successively until 2020.
