Acquistion principles for e resources

Acquistion Principles for e-resources

  • Only databases which allow nationwide access within Germany are acquired resp. licensed.

  • The contract for the special nationwide inter-library loan service („Blauer Leihverkehr“) is the base for access within Germany. The registered institutions for the „Blauer Leihverkehr“ must be able to get access to the electronic resources of the East Asia Department of the Berlin State Library.

  • Usually, electronic resources should be hosted in Berlin.

  • The technical infrastructure – being quite different for the various East Asian databases – should be integrated into the Berlin State Library IT structures.

  • The use of the electronic resources should be offered through the same IT structures of the Berlin State Library as those of the other departments
