- 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

- 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

- 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

- Zentralblatt search facilities

- We offer three menus for different levels of expertise, and a citation checker
- Standard search form
- Advanced search form
- Command mode search form
- Citation checker

- Author
- Title
- Basic Index
- Classification
- Source
- Reviewer
- Zentralblatt Number
- Language
- Document Type

- Journals Database
- MSC (Classification Scheme)
- Reviewer Database (LIMES internal)
- Lookup system (Citation search form)

- Zentralblatt MATH linking facilities

- 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

- Reference links
- Provision of metadata for digitization projects
- Interaction with Encyclopaedias, Handbooks und Bibliographies (to be realized)

- 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)

- WDML (World Digital Mathematics Library)
- Look-up tools for the generation of reference links from digitized offers
- Recommendation of the WDML planning group

DML-EU

- 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

- 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

- 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.
