Die Lithothek von außen

In addition to the main and supply collections the Geoscientific Collections have a central document material archive, the Lithothek. It is located on the grounds of the teaching pit. There in a modern high-bay samples are stored, which were examined in the context of training and research. The database of the archive currently includes more than 34,000 items. Two other rooms in the Lithothek serve the sample cleaning and preparation for subsequent studies.
