  • the Deutsches Dokumentationszentrum für Kunstgeschichte - Bildarchiv Foto Marburg of the Philips-Universität Marburg providing standardised iconographic indexation
  • the Kunstgeschichtliches Seminar of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen with regard to scholarly research on the history of print collecting
