Limes distributed input

LIMESDistributed Input

  • Development of a new input and database production system (in operation since 01.04.2004)

  • Capable for accepting input from distributed partners

  • Allowing for corrections and modifications from distributed sites

  • Implementing shared responsibilities

  • Portable to other services and disciplines like

    • Education in mathematics

    • Mathematical Logics

    • Computer Science

    • Physics

Limes quality of data and retrieval

LIMESQuality of Data and Retrieval

  • New models, techniques and tools for the enhancement of data and a more sophisticated retrieval

  • Author and Source identification

  • Development of new and enhanced retrieval features for the database engine

  • Support for distributed servers:

    • multilingual interfaces

    • access control management

    • update procedures

Limes electronic editorial units

LIMES Electronic Editorial Units

  • Arrange the workflow using electronic means as much as possible

  • Integrated access to shared resources (reviewer database)

  • Apply artificial intelligence concepts for semi-automatic indexing

  • Integrate available metadata automatically

  • Two prototypes

    • NAIS developed by SIBA in Lecce

    • TEQUILA developed by DTV in Copenhagen

Part 4

Part 4

  • Zentralblatt MATH linking facilities

Links from zbl

Links from ZBL

  • Links to items of the bibliographic information (you may, e.g. click on an author, a reviewer, classification code or citations to generate a new search)

  • Links to electronic resources

  • Links to digital archives

Navigation with zbl

Navigation with ZBL

  • Reference links

  • Provision of metadata for digitization projects

  • Interaction with Encyclopaedias, Handbooks und Bibliographies (to be realized)

Integration in digitizing und archiving projects

Integration in Digitizing und Archiving Projects

  • Integration of Zentralblatt MATH (and JFM) into the access and navigation structures of

    • WDML (World Digital Mathematics Library)

      With its European branch DML-EU

    • ERAM (FDM project)

    • EMANI (Electronic Mathematics Archiving Network Initiative)

  • Look-up tools for the generation of reference links from digitized offers

    • Recommendation of the WDML planning group


Integration in the production and promotion of rusdml

Integration in the production and promotion of RusDML

  • RusDML – core archive of digitized Russian journals in mathematics

  • journalwise provision of metadata of Zentralblatt MATH and of FDM

  • Implementation of a fast access to the journals

  • Range of articles covered is from 1868 to present

  • Access to the reviews also for users with minor knowledge of the Russian language

  • Linking of the database with the digitized items

  • Permanent access to the archive in additon to the Russian-British OPAC

Linking to free offers of full texts in emis

Linking to free offers of full texts in EMIS

  • Electronic library within European Mathematical Information Service

  • Host for free full text offers of core journals in mathematics

    • More than 60 journals

    • More than 10.000 articles

  • Immediate access to the journals via

    Zentralblatt MATH

  • Linking between full texts and database entries

  • Links from the bibliographies to database entries

  • Adaption of the production of metadata to the needs of Zentralblatt MATH – direct adoption

Cooperations of zentralblatt math with systems for full text supply

Cooperations of Zentralblatt MATH with systems for full text supply

  • Generating links from the database entries to document delivery services – direct transfer of bibliographical data

    • TIB Hannover, SUB Göttingen, JASON, SIBA Lecce, REBIUN (Spain), HEAL-Link (Greece)

  • Delivery terms are determined by the vendor.

  • Integration of the database into local systems, which offer their service only to local customers.

  • Combined agreements for database access and full text supply in developing countries – CubaMATH, Southern Africa

  • Integration into projects for the integrated access to electronis offers (EULER, EASE and others.)

  • Links to Publishers.
