CW Prototype #1

In the research and development phase of the Collection Wall project, a section of the book wall has become a prototyping area. Prototype #1 is our first attempt to integrate screens within shelves, displaying data from online repositories, and merging digital and physical academic collections. Books and tokens can be scanned for digital recommendations, focusing on master theses and dissertations, and publications by “Best Graduates” (nominated annually by faculties). Historic dissertations are paired with associated physical objects from our Academic Heritage collection, and displayed in vitrines, with AI-generated keywords used to link content.

XR Cone

The XR Cone is a proof-of-concept station designed to visualize and navigate our nonstandard format collections, such as videos, maps, and 3D scans. It transforms the floors of the central cone into shelves of animated visualizations. In a single XR experience, users can interact with collections which are otherwise dispersed across various websites and have limited physical presence.


PURE replaces Metis Pure is a web-based research information system (RIS). It stores all TU Delft research output, such as publications, news items, patents, prizes and activities of TU Delft researchers.


100,000s of maps are available through IIIF, across libraries, archives and museums worldwide. Allmaps makes it easier and more inspiring to curate, georeference and explore collections of digitized maps.

DataCite Netherlands
