On the evening of 18 October 2018, we opened the exhibition HOW TRUSTWORTHY? – An Exhibition on Negligence, Fraud, and Measuring Integrity
in the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum, the university library of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin). Short welcoming speeches by Prof. Dr. Degkwitz (director of the university library), Prof. Dr. Graßhoff (vice dean of the Faculty of Humanities) as well as Prof. Seadle, PhD (Senior Researcher at HU Berlin and Principal Investigator of the HEADT Centre) introduced the urgency of the topic.

The exhibition is a joint project of the HEADT Centre and the Berlin School of Library and Information Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and shows that both human error and deliberate manipulation can compromise the integrity of scholarly findings.
Interested people can visit the exhibition until 17 December 2018 in the foyer of the library at no charge. The English version of the text can be accessed at any time on our website (here).
