In the predecessor institutions and also in the early years of today’s Übersee-Museum, there were many attempts of classification. Index cards, paper lists and books can be found. Some mainly manage the data of the collection incoming, others are related to the individual objects. It was not until the 1930s that the inventory books were created, which are still used today. All the objects in the collection have been listed and information gathered here, so we decided to scan them first and make them available as a resource. Please note that some terminology, for example in object names or geographical attributions, may be of colonial origin or may be outdated for other reasons and so are no longer used by us today.
