Boğaziçi University houses collections in various languages which date from different time periods. These collections shed light on the scientific, cultural and educational developments and histories of İstanbul from the 1850s to the 1990s. The archives and collections which are included in this project are as follows:

These archives and collections include many letters, photographs, official correspondence, lecture notes, sketches, architectural drawings and maps, memoirs and personal objects. Our project team is continuing the classification, cataloging and digitization work on these materials which pertain to history, archaeology, architecture, art and art history, museum studies and hard sciences. Upon the completion of metadata information and digitization, the archival materials will be opened to researchers and we hope that they will inspire new academic research and popular works.
