A memory institution for the digital age Academic Article uri icon


  • The German National Library for Science and Technology (TIB) seizes the opportunity of an epochal change into the Digital Age, inter alia, by maintaining a prestigious research department covering the areas data science & digital libraries, visual analytics, scientific data management, knowledge infrastructures, learning & skill analytics, open science, and non-textual media. Without neglecting the original mission of collecting and curating literature for a widespread access to scientific information, TIB merges well-established processes with intelligent assistance tools. The Specialised Information Service for Mobility and Traffic Science (FID move) is one example of combining the mentioned research areas in order to build a user-centred subject-specific research infrastructure to support and shape tomorrow’s scientific work. We give a detailed introduction to the project’s action fields: web service platform, information supply with a focus on open access, strategy & structure for reusable research data, research community exchange & networking, communication strategies for the public & for scientists. Exemplary, we present the ongoing activities in building a comprehensive knowledge organisation system for e-mobility.
