In 2015, the Schola Graphidis Art Collection, together with the Library’s Art Collection of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, has joined the AthenaPlus project. The university’s two art collections conserve, collect, study and present all the fine arts works and applied arts works, related to their insitutional predecessors, as such, they have remarkable museum objects in Hungary. With joining the AthenaPlus project, the university’s two art collections have the possibilities to publish and to make their museum objects accessible on international level.
In the framework of the AthenaPlus project, the Schola Graphidis Art Collection has provided 3.500 digital records. The items will be avaiIable soon on europeana.eu. The digital records are from the Collection’s Prints and Drawings Collection, the Rare Book Collection and the Photographic Collection and Mediatheque. Besides the 18th–19th-centuries architectural and figural drawings, and the 20th-century historical photographs, the published digital content represents the unique group of the 19th–20th centuries ornamental prints.

The collection has participated also in the experimental work of "Visualization and Indexing of Museum Content" initiative, with providing 100 high quality metadata records. The aim of this experiment is creating enriched, LIDO-based description of objects and presenting them in MOVIO as parts of a “superexhibition”. On behalf of the Schola Graphidis Art Collection, 100 representative museum objects were selected. The museological experiences of the work are summerized in a short paper of the next issue of the Uncommon Culture.
