The service is offered by the Specialised Information Service Historical Studies of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and the Deutsches Museum, Munich.

Among the further digital services of the Specialised Information Service, already available now, there is the currently developed research portal on European history. Further, a beta version of the Deutsche Historische Bibliografie (German Historical Bibliography), the platform recensio.regio.net and, by way of a relaunch following a comprehensive review of both technology and content, the portal historicum.net will be launched online shortly.
