Maastricht Academic Heritage Fund

Maastricht Academic Heritage Fund (AEMF)

The University Library has acquired a number of very special collections – collections from the past that are of significant value to society, education and research now and in the future. Pass this academic heritage on to the next generation by becoming a Friend of the Maastricht Academic Heritage Fund. 

The stunning Jesuit Collection, with valuable works of scientific, legal and theological significance, is a well-known acquisition. Several of the other heritage collections bear a specific Limburg signature, such as the personal library of Limburg poet Pierre Kemp (1886–1967) and the documentation collection by painter Charles Eyck (1897–1983). This collection not only paints a picture of the artist himself, but also of the artistic world of 20th century Limburg.

This is how we work 

Maastricht University (UM) has a careful acquisition policy that allows it to acquire unique collections

The University Library possesses several important heritage collections and makes these available for research and education. These often involve paper documents, which need to be carefully handled, digitised and made available to a wider audience

The Maastricht Academic Heritage Fund (AEMF) encourages initiatives and projects in these areas to ensure this heritage retains its unique value.
