800 special maps, prints, drawings and works of art have been digitized and are now accessible online.
Who was Thomas Erpenius? Which Nobel Prize winners worked in Leiden? In what years did Albert Einstein work at Leiden University? How many female professors were employed by the Medical Department? These and other questions can be answered by the new website Leiden professors since 1575 (Leidse Hoogleraren vanaf 1575). Rector Magnificus and President of the Executive Board Carel Stolker launched the site on October 27. Although the website is in Dutch, it is easily navigable for non-Dutch speakers.
