HSG history accessible to everyone

The HSG University Archives have made their university history accessible to everyone. More than 1,100 publications extending to over 50,000 pages have been readied for online research.


3 March 2015. How many students were enrolled in Winter Semester 1914/15? In which year was former Federal Councillor Ruth Dreifuss awarded the title of Honorary Senator? What did the Dalai Lama speak about on the occasion of his visit to the HSG in 1995? It is to provide answers to these and other questions about the HSG's history that the University Archives have made the Online Publication Archive available.

Research in publications from 1899

The University Archives have been digitalising their most important sources of HSG history for the last eight years.
