INEHC, the International Network of Educational History Collections serves to mutually benefit and improve information infrastructures in the field of education history. It emerged from an informal network of educational history institutions. In the summer of 2023, the founding institutions agreed in a memorandum of understanding to institutionalize and expand the network more strongly.

  • Create and maintain common register of collecting institutions and their collections
  • Support metadata exchange
