Specialised Information Service for Russian, East and Southeast European Studies
|Funding||German Research Foundation (DFG)|
|Project term||01/01/2016 – 31/12/2018|
The German Research Foundation (DFG) supports a Specialised Information Service for Russian, East and Southeast European Studies (Fachinformationsdienst, FID) at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek from 2016 to 2018.
The FID offers a supportive infrastructure for the current and future research of eastern and south-eastern Europe in the fields of humanities and social sciences: The core of the Specialised Information Service is the comprehensive acquisition, cataloguing and provision of scholarly literature and sources (in printed and in electronic form) for research in Germany. For this purpose, both traditional services are used and expanded and new services and research instruments are developed. In addition, the existing platform for open-access publication of collective works and journals is expanded to also encompass research data and ego-documents (www.ostdok.de). The FID is rounded off by a research platform (www.osmikon.de) which pools all these services and complements them by linking up the services of other important institutions in the field of east-European studies.
