Coordination Office

the ADA coordination office is responsible for the management and academic operations of the center. The office is located at the University Library and works in close connection with all departments and central institutions. The  coordination office operates in close ties with the "Team Digital Humanities" as well as with the Research Data Management also located at the University Library. In tandem with these divisions, we develop services and infrastructures to make DH expertise (tools, methods, sustainable IT solutions) available on a permanent basis.
