The collection of the Curative Education and Social Therapy Library comprises almost the entire German anthroposophical literature on curative education and social therapy. The collection includes journals, books and academic literature as well as titles in other languages. Through the integration into the Goetheanum Library, the collection will now be accessible to the public for research projects and individual studies and via the electronic catalogue of the IDS Basel Bern library network.
Jan Göschel from the management team of the Anthroposophic Council for Inclusive Social Development: "I am delighted that this collection, which was created by Rüdiger Grimm with the support of Gabriele Scholtes, is being professionally maintained and further developed through the cooperation between the Goetheanum Library and the Council - which will benefit research work and interesting projects. Maxime Le Roux, director of the Goetheanum Library, sees the cooperation as a qualitative improvement for the Goetheanum Library and promises that "the special field of curative education and social therapy will be well represented in the Goetheanum Library."
The integration of the specialised library is one step among others towards advancing and presenting the international and interdisciplinary diversity of the field of anthroposophical curative education and social therapy. Further steps are the renaming of the conference for curative education and social therapy into the Anthroposophic Council for Inclusive Social Development and the launch of a new website.
