Information Service for Book, Library and Information Science

The information service to be developped by the HAB Wolfenbüttel and the Leipzig University Library seeks to fulfill the special demands of the disciplines of book, library and information science. In close cooperation with the various research fields it aims at building up an attractive and sustainable service portal that provides not only comprehensive information resources, but also opportunities to archive and publish research data and documents and serves as a central contact and communication point. In detail, the applicants propose (i) to establish a central index for relevant resources by taking advantage of modern search engine technology and order services, (ii) to collect specialized, international literature and media (by purchase or OA), (iii) in view of the e-only policy to provide full text and full text services, e.g. by digitization of own or third party copyright free sources or copyrighted literature with limited access to the index only, (iv) to establish a repository for documents and research data and (v) finally to devise a general communication and information platform.
