Weblog Discontinued †

Dear Readers,
with a heavy heart I will have to annouce the discontinuation of our library weblog.

Over the years this weblog has been the avenue with which we shared all kinds of news regarding the library, it’s tools, the institute, events and much more. But as all good things do it has to come to an end. Starting today we will no longer post updates on this medium.

But this doesn’t mean we will stop informing you about what’s new! We have made some changes to the library website:


to display important information that was previously here.

From now on you can find three new pages directly on the library website:

  • News
  • New Acquisitions
  • Library Workshops

And for anyone interested old articles will still be avalibe to read for some time.

2022: the UN International Year Of Glass

The United Nations have declared 2022 the International Year Of Glass to highlight the importance of glass for science and society.

The International Commission on Glass (ICG) and the Community of Glass Assocciations (CGA) will host various events and activities, including a congress to be held in Berlin in July 2022. This coincides with the 100th Anniversary of the Deutsche Glastechnische Gesellschaft (DGG, German Society of Glass Technology).

The joint website of the DGG and the Hüttentechnische Vereinigung der Deutschen Glasindustrie (HVG) presents an overview of many other events with both popular and professional scope in Germany.
