RESILIENCE Transnational Access Webinars 2022

Want to learn more about our Transnational Access (TNA) program which will be launched soon? Then our TNA webinar series, highlighting the hosts and collections, might be interesting to you. The planned dates of the 2022 webinars are now available.

Series of Webinars

The series of webinars is coordinated by KU Leuven and organized in collaboration with other RESILIENCE partners, with the aim of showcasing the TNA and RESILIENCE potential of a variety of hosts and collections.

TNA – Transnational Access

The RESILIENCE TNA (Transnational Access) program is intended to facilitate physical access to a wide range of institutions, by creating an overarching research infrastructure of expertise, special collections, and institutions, all embedded within the RESILIENCE infrastructure.

In these topical webinars, partners will introduce their unique collections to a broad audience: some focus on valuable physical items or specific collections, others on providing specialized training for recently digitized collections, or introducing us to locally available expertise and additional benefits.

In short, the webinars provide a fascinating glimpse of the wealth and diversity of collections already available to potential TNA scholars and RESILIENCE users.

TNA program

The TNA program itself, offering scholars direct and supported access to the rich collections, is currently in preparation. It will start most likely in the course of 2022 and will be further developed in the coming years.
